University of Dundee to study wave power anchoring: A new research project launched by the University of Dundee

The Geowave project aims to overcome some of the technical and economic hurdles associated with anchoring wave energy devices to the seabed. And, the research may also have further applications for other types of offshore energy, such as floating platforms for offshore wind turbines. Lead by the University of Dundee and funded with €1.1million from the European Union FP7 programme , the project also involves the University of Western Australia and University College Cork, together with a number of small to medium-sized enterprises, including Lloyds Register, Seaflex AB , Deep Sea Anchors , Wavebob and Cathie Associates . "There is great potential for wave power to be a valuable source of renewable energy but if it is to be realised we have to make it robust and cost-effective," said Dr Jonathan Knappett, senior lecturer in the School of Engineering, Physics and Mathematics...
