Powering aquaculture with wave energy (FS115)

Aim:

This project aims to capture wave and power load data from live aquaculture sites to assess the economic viability and practicalities of using MANTA to power the loads on the farms.

Funding Amount:

£45,996.65

Duration of Project:

5 Months

Project Summary:

Within the SIF phase 1 project, Aqua Power Technologies is seeking to capture wave and power load data from live aquaculture sites to assess the economic viability and practicalities of using MANTA to power the loads on the farms. MANTA is a small scale and low-cost wave energy converter, which converts ocean waves into electricity. MANTA is specifically designed for the aquaculture industry and has the potential to reduce the industries reliance on fossil fuels, and significantly reduce the CO2 emissions.
