CRE delivers cable and connector solutions for Marine Power Systems

CRE delivers cable and connector solutions for Marine Power Systems (MPS) WaveSub wave energy generation device for the initial sea-based testing at Milford Haven.

The quarter-scale prototype WaveSub wave energy converter has already completed the first steps of an initial phase of testing by demonstrating its ability to be towed and accessed while being in surface configuration on the ocean. Prior to the sea launch, the WaveSub underwent a full suite of land-based commissioning tests which formed a structured program of verification to confirm its suitability for testing at sea.

The WaveSub wave energy device, unveiled at Pembroke Dock in October 2017, is designed to generate electricity by harnessing energy from the continual orbital motion of waves under the surface of the sea. Following the completion of initial tests at Milford Haven, the WaveSub will be towed to the FaBTest marine test site in Cornwall, England.

Robin Mair, Managing Director of CRE stated “We are excited by the opportunities in the renewables market and delighted to be chosen to support MPS with their ¼ scale prototype.

As with all prototypes, the design included many one-off custom items, something too many other suppliers are unwilling or unable to offer. This was a great example of how CRE are willing to tailor a solution to meet specific customer requirements in a short time frame. We look forward to the WaveSub concept moving to a full scale version following success in the upcoming sea trials.”
