WES seeks advisor for wave projects
Wave Energy Scotland (WES) is looking to appoint an individual or organization to act as its independent third party advisor for all the novel wave energy converter (NWEC) stage 2 projects.
The role of the third party advisor is to provide an independent appraisal of the physical modelling and numerical simulation activities undertaken by the NWEC stage 2 projects.
The candidate or organization will seek to provide confidence in the outcomes of the NWEC stage 2 projects by advising WES on the consistency with industry best practice methodologies and the credibility of the outputs.
To remind, WES has in 2015 allocated £2.25 million to 8 technology developers and consortia to take their technologies through WES’ stage one technology development process over the period of 12 months.
It is anticipated that up to four stage 1 projects will be selected to progress to stage 2.
Project duration is scheduled for up to 16 months, beginning mid-May 2017.
The deadline for applications has been set for April 11, 2017.
WES is a subsidiary of Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) established by the Scottish government to advance the wave energy sector in Scotland.
