Mocean Energy partners with subsea sector in wave energy project

Edinburgh-based wave energy company Mocean Energy announced on 10 February that it has teamed up with energy major Chrysaor, subsea energy storage experts EC-OG and AUV specialist Modus in a subsea power project.

The project is funded by the partners and the Oil and Gas Technology Centre. They will look to use Mocean Energy’s Blue Star wave energy converter and EC-OG’s HALO subsea energy storage system to power subsea tiebacks or residential autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs).

If industry feedback is positive, the partners will proceed with a technology field trial off the coast of Orkney later this year. Once proven, the technologies have the potential to provide green power for future fleets of AUVs.
