The CorPower C3 Wave Energy Converter has been delivered to Orkney, Scotland, where it will be deployed at the European Marine Energy Centre’s (EMEC) Scapa Flow site.
In preparation for CorPower’s C3 Wave Energy Converter deployment at the European Marine Energy Centre’s (EMEC) Scapa Flow site in Orkney, CorPower and marine operator Leask Marine have successfully completed installation of a bottom-based foundation module.
The CorPower C3 Wave Energy Converter has, after a rigorous dry test program in Stockholm, been delivered to a workshop in Kirkwall, Orkney. The device is currently undergoing final checks, with installation and on-site commissioning at the Scapa Flow site expected at the beginning of 2018.
Robert Argo, Marine Operations Manager, CorPower, said: 'We are pleased to have successfully completed this foundation install together with Leask Marine, who provided precise, reliable and safe offshore operations for this part of the project. Having a significant track record in installing and supporting marine renewable energy devices, Leask Marine is a highly appreciated partner. We look forward to continuing to work closely with the Orkney supply chain over the coming months during deployment and maintenance of our resonant C3 Wave Energy Converter.'
