InterMoor wins mooring contact for wave energy system
Columbia Power has awarded InterMoor, an Acteon company, the contract to design a cost-effective and survivable mooring system for its StingRay
Columbia Power has awarded InterMoor, an Acteon company, the contract to design a cost-effective and survivable mooring system for its StingRay offshore wave energy converter (WEC) prototype.
The project, which has already started with some advanced modelling and design work, will last for two years with high potential for further work. InterMoor will provide analysis along with the design for the WEC’s mooring system; field engineering; and operational logistics for deployment and recovery procedures in addition to overseeing offshore marine operations. InterMoor, which is recognized globally in the oil and gas industry as the deepwater mooring technology pioneer, will draw on its vast offshore experience to deliver the necessary expertise in engineering, project management and advanced numerical analysis for its first wave energy project.
The design will be targeted for offshore locations in the USA, Western Europe and other high-energy sites around the world.
