Harnessing the power of the oceans to generate renewable energy resources

Another great example of innovation from a customer Pelamis Wave Power! Its focus: harnessing the power of the oceans to generate renewable energy resources all over the world. Pelamis is constantly looking to optimize its revolutionary Wave Energy Converter, making energy capture and conversion more efficient and more cost effective.Pelamis

Based in Edinburgh, Pelamis Wave Power Ltd is the manufacturer of a unique system to generate renewable electricity from ocean waves. The Pelamis Wave Energy Converter was the world’s first commercial scale machine to generate electricity into the grid from offshore wave energy and the first to be used in commercial wave farm projects.

Groundbreaking engineering of this kind offers no shortage of design challenges, involving large- and small-scale components, complex hydroelectric engineering, multiple suppliers and considerable FEA and CFD analysis. “We don’t really have the luxury of prototypes,” says Taylor. “And reducing our design time is always a priority, so it’s important to be able to iron out any problems as early in the design process as we can.”
