Atlantis to decommission SeaGen

Following the acquisition of Marine Current Turbines, together with its seabed rights, existing projects, and intellectual property, which includes the SeaGen S device, in April, 2015, Atlantis has now announced plans to begin with the decommissioning process of the device this year. SeaGen S 1.2 MW tidal device was installed at Stranford Lough in 2008, and has since generated 10 GWh of electricity from tides.

MPS concludes WaveSub pump testing

Marine Power Systems has completed the testing of the prototype pump for its WaveSub wave energy converter. The aim of the pump testing was to determine whether any biofouling or corrosion affected the performance of the pump. It was conducted by Severn Subsea Technologies. MPS plans to test its quarter-scale WaveSub device at FaBTest, a test area situated 2.8 square km within Falmouth harbor, later this year.
