UmbraGroup-led Electro-Mechanical Reciprocating Generator (EMERGE) project has delivered sea trial in Scapa Flow, Orkney Islands. The project is funded by Wave Energy Scotland within the innovation power take-off (PTO) Stage 3 call.
The Electro-Mechanical Generator (EMG) is an innovative direct-drive system able to convert linear, reciprocating motion into electricity. It is based on the integration of a recirculating ballscrew and a permanent magnet generator.
This project should allow developing engineering solutions for survivability in the marine environment and give valuable information concerning the EMG performance in real sea conditions.
In May last year, a €3.8 million in EU research funding was awarded to UmbraGroup-led international consortium made up of The University in Edinburgh, Bureau Veritas, Norges Teknisk-Naturvitenskapelige Universitet (NTNU), Cruz Atcheson Consulting Engineers, VGA, Supply Design, Seapower, JGC, Doosan, HMS and Green Marine.
