Mainstay Wraps Up Fabrication of AMOG Wave Energy Device

Mainstay Marine Solutions has completed the fabrication and assembly of the 48te wave energy device for Australian company AMOG Consulting.

The device was deployed from Pembroke Dock and couple of days later arrived into Falmouth Harbour following a 168nm tow.

Stewart Graves, managing director, said: “Mainstay is delighted to have built the WEC for AMOG. Incidentally this is Mainstay’s fourth Marine Energy fabrication project which we feel is a great endorsement of our marine engineering capabilities and future growth potential based in the heart of the Pembroke Dock Marine Hub. The sector continues to gain confidence and momentum and will be significant tin making a 2050 carbon-neutral future, a reality. We wish AMOG the very best in their next phase of testing.”

The one-third scale WEC (Wave Energy Convertor) device will extract the energy from incoming waves through the motion of its pendulum structure, the company explained.

Ben Clark, AMOG CEO added: “The launch of this device is the culmination of thousands of hours of wave energy research, hydrodynamic analysis, structural design, hull fabrication and electrical integration work. It is a great credit to all involved and I am looking forward to the execution of the test programme and the insights it will bring for the future development of this innovative technology.”

The device will undergo extensive testing at the consented nursery site FaBTest during the Autumn months.

David Jones, director, Marine Energy Wales said: “This is yet another example of how the marine energy sector is providing supply chain companies across the UK with diversification opportunities. It is really positive to see Mainstay continuing to export their skills at a global level and to complete the build for an international company. Capturing these low carbon opportunities is key for Wales and one of the drivers for Pembroke Dock Marine and the META project. Being able to build and test devices and components in real sea conditions close to port infrastructure will play a key role in cost reduction.”
