AWS Ocean Energy

Inverness-based AWS Ocean Energy has been developing marine energy systems for over 20 years.

The Archimedes Waveswing technology is a submerged wave power buoy designed to provide reliable and affordable power for maritime communities and offshore applications. The Waveswing reacts to changes in sub-sea water pressure caused by passing waves and converts the resulting motion to electricity via a direct-drive generator. The system is suitable for deployment in water depths in excess of 25 metres and can be configured for ratings between 25 kW and 250 kW.

Key benefits of the Waveswing technology derive from its unique operating principle, its sub-sea location and the use of direct-drive technology. These combine to produce a system that is inherently survivable and reliable whilst providing best-in-class efficiency and cost and a minimal environmental footprint.

The Waveswing device arrived in Orkney in January 2022 and will be deployed at EMEC’s scale test site in Scapa Flow.

The demonstration is funded by Wave Energy Scotland and supported by the Interreg North-West Europe OceanDEMO project. The OceanDEMO support package will provide a real boost to AWS enabling real sea demonstration and helping to attract further investment.
