MPS Completes Scaled Tank Testing of WaveSub

Marine Power Systems (MPS), a Swansea-based company, has recently conducted scaled tank testing of its WaveSub device. The tank scale power-take-off systems have been developed in collaboration with the University of Bath. In addition to validating MPS’ computational simulations, the test programme has been supported by two Plymouth University post-graduate students as part of their[…]
