Renewables start-up Mocean Energy is set to send its prototype Blue X wave power machine out to sea next month as it works towards its goal of delivering low-carbon power for future fleets of autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs). The 38-tonne machine, fabricated wholly in Scotland by AJS Production of Fife, was unveiled at a ceremony at Forth Ports’ Rosyth Docks by Tim Hurst, managing director of Wave Energy Scotland (WES). WES supported the manufacture and testing of Blue X with £3.3 million though its Novel Wave Energy Converter programme. Founded in Edinburgh in 2015, Mocean is developing wave energy converters for markets such as the oil and gas and utility sectors. AUVs are used for the inspection, repair and maintenance of subsea equipment, but are currently powered by offshore gas turbines which generate emissions.
