Delivering Global Projects
MPS is moving rapidly towards market readiness and the business is already getting significant traction with a number of key partners and customers in the market.
Basque Country, Spain
BiMEP in the Basque Country, Spain has been chosen for the deployment of a grid-connected commercial megawatt scale combined wind and wave device. The site offers deep water testing conditions and a direct connection into the Spanish electricity grid.
MPS undertook a rigorous benchmarking exercise across all of the possible test sites; BiMEP was identified as having excellent metocean wind and wave conditions in which to test and demonstrate our revolutionary technology.
MPS are deploying two multi-Megawatt WaveSub wave energy converters at the grid connected revenue generating site.
The commercial scale array will support the ongoing development of the device and its functionality to ensure that the commercial arrays delivered at increasing scale represent the most robust, reliable and cost-effective devices on the market.
EMEC’s best in class facility will help us prove what is achievable in some of the harshest marine environments in the world while in close proximity to sheltered waters and harbours.
