AWS Ocean Energy contracted Malin Renewables to build the half-scale Archimedes Waveswing, designed for the production of electricity from sea waves. Development of the Archimedes Waveswing is funded by Wave Energy Scotland through its Novel Wave Energy Converter programme.

The Waveswing will be fabricated and assembled at Malin’s Westway Park site in Renfrew, Scotland.

Ben Sharples, director Malin Marine, said: “We are thrilled to be working on this project with AWS, as it provides the opportunity to deliver a turnkey solution, building on our expertise in delivering complex, multi-faceted projects. This particular project enables the team to utilise its expertise in hydraulics, electrical power, air systems, pressure vessels and mooring, delivering an integral piece of equipment for the wave energy sector.”

Activity will commence immediately and this step has been supported by a continued working relationship between AWS and the wider Malin Group, which is set to continue in the future through the development of the Scottish Marine Technology Park (SMTP).

The SMTP is being developed on the Clyde River at Old Kilpatrick, as HLPFI reported here in 2018. It will feature a large fabrication facility and a deepwater jetty with a 1,100-tonne lifting capacity ship hoist – the largest of its kind in Scotland.
