Malin Gets Waveswing Steel
Malin Renewables has recently received the steel to kick off the fabrication works for AWS Ocean Energy’s Archimedes Waveswing wave power generation device.
In February this year, Malin Renewables secured a £1-million contract from AWS to supply a fifty-tonne wave energy converter.
Malin will build the half-scale Archimedes Waveswing WEC at its Westway Park site in Renfrew.
The development of the WEC is funded by Wave Energy Scotland through its Novel Wave Energy Converter programme.
Working relationship between AWS and the wider Malin Group is set to continue in the future through the development of the Scottish Marine Technology Park (SMTP).
The SMTP will be developed on the upper Clyde at Old Kilpatrick and will be a centre of excellence for the marine industry, creating 1000 jobs.
It will feature a large fabrication facility and a deep-water jetty with a 1,100 tonne ship hoist which will be required to support the commercialization of wave energy technology of this scale.
