John McCarthy, CEO of OceanEnergy Limited, Commissioner Maire Geoghegan-Quinn and Michael Whelan Operations Director OceanEnergy Limited.. November 21st 2010.. Maire Geoghan-Quinn, the EU Commissioner for Research, Innovation and Science, today visited the OceanEnergy Buoy in Galway.. The device has been successfully tested in Galway Bay for over 2 and a half years.. It is the only device of its type to have undergone and survived such rigorous testing including coping with a one in 40 year wave during the sea trials.. It is now to be used as a platform for European Universities and Companies to test their components on as part of the €4.. 5m European Research Project - CORES funded by Commissioner Geoghegan-Quinn s department.. The project is being co-ordinated by the Hydraulics and Maritime Research Centre (HMRC) in UCC and its aim is to further develop components required by the wave energy sector as it evolves such as power generators, power control systems, telemetry and grid interface tehchnology.. The total amount of EU funding for the four Irish participants is €1.. 4m.. The other countries represented in the project are Protugal, UK, Spain, Germany, Denmark and Italy.. Dr.. Tony Lewis, Director of HMRC and Coordinator of the project said that it represents important research collaboration between University research groups and Industry in Europe and will lead to increased understanding of component behaviour to accelerate wave energy development.. John mcCarthy, Chief Executive of OceanEnergy said the project would make a significant contribution to the realisation of the wave energy sector in Ireland as a commercial reality.. He said the potential of the industry is tremendous not alone in terms of clean energy generated but also for job creation.. The value of the wave energy resource could be worth as much as €295 Billion to the economy by 2050.. Ultimately we will be connected to a Eurpean supergrid selling Irish electricity to Europe.. The publication in the past 2 weeks of the draft Ocean Renewable Energy Development Plan states that we have the potential to install 30,000MW of wave energy devices by 2030, by comparison the current level of installed wind is about 1,500MW and the industry employs about 1,500 people.. Based on the Government studies, by achieving even 25% of this 30,000MW wave energy target we could create over 50,000 jobs because we could be using indigenous technology rather than importing it as we did with wind according to Mr.. McCarthy.. Filed by: Theresa @ December 8, 2010 at 1:24 pm.. John McCarthy, CEO,  ...   wave energy development company, Ocean Energy Limited with one of the world’s leading turbine manufacturers, US multinational Dresser-Rand.. The move endorses Ocean Energy’s technology and also boosts the Government’s alternative energy strategy.. Ocean Energy has successfully tested its quarter scale Ocean Energy Buoy over the last two and a half years at the Government’s test site in Galway Bay..

  • Title: Ocean Energy News » OceanEnergy agree to install the first device at the Wave Hub off Cornwall Coast
    Descriptive info: Wave Hub will fund Ocean Energy’s deployment costs up to a maximum of £1 million (€1.. 2 million).. This includes the cost of securing a marine licence and installation of moorings and deployment.. John McCarthy, chief executive and co-founder of Ocean Energy said: “This is a major achievement for Irish technology, which has been developed with the assistance of Irish government funding and expertise at the UCC Hydraulics and Maritime Research Centre.. It is also an endorsement of the technology development path adopted by Ocean Energy.. “.. He said that the rigorous testing and proven survivability of Ocean Energy’s technology was a key driver in winning this opportunity for their device.. Ireland, with its resources and technical capabilities, has the potential to become the world leader in wave energy and Ocean Energy plans to play its part in making this a reality.. Wave Hub general manager Claire Gibson said: “I am pleased to confirm our partnership with Ocean Energy Limited and look forward to assisting them with their deployment at Wave Hub later this year.. Ocean Energy has completed three years of prototype testing in energetic sea conditions and is ready to make the next step to Wave Hub with a full-scale device.. If the testing goes well we expect to see Ocean Energy deploy an array of devices at Wave Hub.. According to a recent study by SEAI – Sustainable Energy Authority Ireland - the Irish wave energy industry has the potential to employ 50,000 people by 2030 and could generate over four times our current installed capacity or 30,000 MW of power.. Denmark is the world leader in wind energy development and earns €6 billion annually from the industry, which employs 30,000 people.. Contact.. Kevin Mills,.. Mills Public Relations.. 00 353 (0)86 3620808.. Note to Editors.. Ocean Energy’s OE Buoy uses the oscillating water column principle.. As waves enter a subsea chamber they force air through a turbine on the surface, generating electricity.. As the waves recede they cause a vacuum, drawing air back through the turbine.. Ocean Energy’s technology means the turbine rotates continuously regardless of the direction of the airflow.. This improves efficiency and means it only has one moving part, minimising maintenance costs.. Dresser-Rand and Ocean Energy Limited already have a memorandum of understanding to develop a full range of full-scale devices to produce commercial electricity.. Dresser-Rand developed and patented the HydroAir™ turbine - a variable radius turbine that uses a combination of stainless steel, aluminium and reinforced composites to resist corrosion.. The turbine is  ...   a competition last year for device developers able to deploy in 2012.. This includes the cost of securing a Marine Licence and installation of moorings and deployment.. Ocean Energy has completed three years of prototype testing in energetic sea conditions and is ready to make the next step to Wave Hub with a full scale device.. By supporting Ocean Energy’s deployment now we can fully test our operational procedures and establish the process for securing a Marine Licence.. This will support and accelerate further deployments at Wave Hub.. John McCarthy, chief executive and co-founder of Ocean Energy said: “We are delighted to have been chosen by Wave Hub to deploy our technology at their Hayle facility.. Cornwall has been to the forefront in developing and incubating the wave energy sector and is well placed to reap the rewards of this foresight with an excellent range of services available locally.. Ocean Energy will now consider fabricating its 1.. 5 MW device locally.. This announcement follows South West England’s recent designation as the UK’s first Marine Energy Park.. Copy ends.. February 9, 2012.. Notes to Editors.. Wave Hub consists of a giant ‘socket’ on the seabed connected to the national grid on shore by an underwater cable, into which wave energy devices can be ‘plugged’ and tested on a scale not seen anywhere before.. The project has four berths available and a capacity of 20MW, equivalent to the electricity needs of more than 7,000 homes..

  • Title: Development History - OE Technology - OceanEnergy
    Descriptive info: Design - Build - Test: The OceanEnergy philosophy.. Launching for sea trials.. The development history of the OceanEnergy buoy is one of novel design, progressive engineering and industry based development protocols.. The technology success is the result of a rigorous and systematic approach to both R D and engineering.. The OE Bouy has undergone three full phases of scaled testing, from 1:50 scale to 1:4 scale.. The rigorous testing at each phase is a testament to the scientific and engineering foundations of the project.. The current development phase is of a scale device and then moving to the production phase and the construction of full scale devices, building on the lessons of the phased program.. Phase 1 One Fiftieth (1:50) Scale;.. Testing on the OE Buoy was carried out at the Hydraulics and Maritime Research Centre (HMRC) in University College Cork, Ireland.. This testing programme, which used a device model to a scale of 1:50, was designed to optimise the hull configuration and maximise the  ...   basin at Ecole Central de Nantes, France.. HMRC staff were used to carry out the tests at Nantes to ensure full continuity within the development process.. During these larger scale trials more detailed information was obtained and confirmation of the predicted energy capture and device behaviour in larger sea states.. Phase 3 Quarter (1:4) Scale;.. Following the successful outcome of the controlled tests in Cork and Nantes, phase 3 saw the live sea launch of the quarter scale, 28 tonne model and the successful completion of stability sea trials in Cork Harbour.. This stage of testing was a necessary precursor to the deployment of the device to a live sea test site and which commenced off the west coast of Ireland in December 2006.. This open sea test programme has confirmed the ability of the device to behave and operate stably, safely and reliably in real state sea conditions.. These sea trials were planned, supervised and monitored by staff from the HMRC at University College Cork..
