Quoceant will be attending the European Wave and Tidal Energy Conference (EWTEC) 2017 from 28th to the 31st of August.
This year’s conference will be held in the city of Cork, Ireland and hosted in the beautiful University College Cork campus. The European Wave and Tidal Energy Conference (EWTEC) series are international technical and scientific conferences, focused on ocean renewable energy and offering a high standard of academic and industrial contributions.
It’s a problem that has long thwarted wave energy pioneers – how to transform the slow back and forth motion of waves into a reliable and cost-effective stream of electricity. Now two Edinburgh firms – Artemis Intelligent Power and Quoceant – have together secured £2.5 million from Scottish agency Wave Energy Scotland to trial a prototype power take off system which helps to do just that. The duo has developed a technology dubbed ‘Quantor’ which for the first time includes th
Quoceant, working with the Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult and SgurrControl Ltd, has completed a landscaping study into the control systems for wave energy convertors on behalf of Wave Energy Scotland (WES). Commissioned in March 2016, the overarching study was aimed at helping identify the future control requirements of the wave sector and enable targeted technology development and innovation. Ross Henderson, Quoceant project lead, said: “Control is an area of fund
Quoceant are getting ready for the Scottish Renewables Marine Conference on the 13th of September. We will be presenting and exhibiting at the flagship marine conference held in Inverness. Our Director, Richard Yemm will be giving a talk in session 2B, "Constructing the First Tidal Arrays". In the session Richard will outline Quoceant's activity in the tidal sector and discuss how our past experience working in the wave energy sector is offering lessons and new perspectives
Quoceant and Artemis Intelligent Power have been successful in winning a contract from Wave Energy Scotland (WES) in their call for Power Take-Off projects. The collaborative project will integrate Artemis Digital Displacement® technology into the state of the art Power Take-off system that was previously demonstrated in the Pelamis wave energy converter by the Quoceant team. The new hybrid system will offer 4-quadrant power transmission across a very wide range of powers f
