InterMoor Recovers PowerBuoy After Successful North Sea Trial
InterMoor’s Marine Project team in Aberdeen successfully recovered the Ocean Power Technologies (OPT) PowerBuoy after a 7-month trial in harsh North Sea winter conditions. The buoy can act as an uninterruptable power supply which constantly recharges itself by harvesting energy from the waves. The team removed the mooring equipment and towed the buoy, landing it successfully. InterMoor and the wider Acteon Group Ltd. will be continuing to work with OPT to review the project and to plan future global deployments of this technology to resolve energy transition challenges.
