WaveSub hires helping hand
Severn Subsea Technologies supporting device's quarter-scale testing
Severn Subsea Technologies (SST) has been selected to design elements of the control and electrical system for Marine Power Systems’ WaveSub quarter-scale prototype at the FaBTest site in Falmouth.
SST has previously worked on the design and supply of the control system for Seatricity Oceanus 2, while its sister company Severn Glocon manufactured valves for wave energy converters for Aquamarine Power’s Oyster and Carnegie Wave Energy’s Ceto devices.
SST site manager Tim Blake said: “The specialist engineering skills at SST make us an ideal partner for this project.”
Marine Power Systems co-founder and managing director Gareth Stockman said: “[We have] worked with SST on numerous previous projects; we have every confidence in the highly specialist team to deliver our requirements for the quarter-scale prototype.”
