Pure Marine Gen Ltd.

Stand 1.329 - Dutch Marine Energy Centre

Pure Marine is developing the DUO wave energy convertor (WEC) a high power-capture, self-re acting point absorber that captures power from both heave and pitch/surge motions. The DUO featured as a finalist in the US Department of Energy’s ‘Wave Energy Prize’ competition (see picture above) and development is now continuing focusing on a number of different applica tions. Following assistance from Exceedence Ltd in assessing the market for ‘ocean observing’ devices, a project aimed at extending the range of autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV’s) is being progressed. This project will focus on tank testing a PTO unit to be developed with a view to integration into UAV’s to enable greater autonomy and extend range. The University of Edinburgh will assist Pure Marine in the development of the PTO to be deployed and tested.
