Following the competitive Phase 1 of EuropeWave’s Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP) programme, five wave energy projects have been selected to develop their concepts further in the next phase, including AMOG's Sea-Saw WEC.

AMOG Consulting Ltd has completed model testing of its wave energy converter as part of the EuropeWave project. With the support of the EuropeWave Pre-commercial Procurement Programme, 

testing took place at the FloWave circular tank facility within the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. This AMOG Sea-Saw wave energy device will advance wave energy technology by introducing a new class of dual-hull hinged wave energy convertors capable of generating utility grid scale wave energy from direct drive power take-offs.

The AMOG device, designed and built at model scale, included sophisticated model scale power take-off units which enabled direct measurement of developed power, giving high confidence in the predicted results; one of the most successful power-producing tests to date, demonstrating a strong foundation of power output to underpin the long-term economics of the technology.

The testing campaign included a series of the International Electrotechnical Commission regular wave and irregular wave specification tests, along with robustness checks on quartering conditions.

This is part of the EuropeWave project that has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under grant agreement No 883751.
