Aegir Wave Power has recently redeployed a waverider buoy off the coast of Shetland. The buoy enables Aegir to measure the wave climate at the site of interest and inform decisions on the wave farm design. The NAFC Marine Centre will be maintaining the buoy while it is onsite, and monitoring its position and measurements […]
Energy Minister Fergus Ewing has today granted consent for the 370MW Viking wind farm on Shetland. The wind farm will allow the construction of an interconnector cable between the Shetland Isles and the Scottish mainland, allowing the export of electricity to the national grid. This interconnector is vital for the Aegir wave farm being developed […]
Aegir Wave Power has successfully deployed a second wave measurement buoy off the south west coast of Shetland. The buoy, which floats on the surface of the sea, will measure the wave height, direction and period at its location 2km offshore of Kettle Ness, West Burra. The information will be used by Aegir Wave […]
Aegir Wave Power has commenced vital wave resource monitoring for its wave energy project off south west Shetland. The deployment of a wave rider buoy was completed with the support of the Scalloway-based NAFC Marine Centre. The Marine Centre has signed a support agreement with Aegir to assist in project development activities, which includes […]
Van Oord has started the next campaign to install jacket foundations at East Anglia One wind farm offshore Suffolk, UK, with twelve of the units now already in place.

This year, five entries will be eligible for the 2013 KVNR Shipping Award, an award granted by the Royal Association of Netherlands Shipowners for shipping, environmental, organisational or socially conscious innovations effectuated by shipping companies. The winner will be announced at the 2013 Maritime Awards Gala which will take place in De Broodfabriek in Rijswijk […]
Tank testing of scale models to develop the next generation of Pelamis Wave Power’s wave energy converter (WEC) machines have now been successfully completed. The tank testing process forms a key part of a £1.4m project commissioned and funded by the Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) which is looking to boost the cost-effectiveness of large-scale WEC […]
The partners behind plans for Shetland’s first wave power scheme will tell island representatives this week that it is set to ramp up public consultation and environmental research off the south west mainland ahead of a planning application in 2015. The work planned for the Aegir scheme in 2013 will be outlined by European energy […]
After one of Vattenfall’s wave measurement buoys disappeared from its anchoring place, the company had to assure the residents of the Shetland Islands that the proposed Aegir wave farm will be firmly anchored. Last year, Vattenfall deployed two buoys around 2 kilometres to the west of the south tip of Burra and one of them […]
Nautimus, the new Scottish company, has been established by Vattenfall, with support from leading UK engineering support services firm Babcock and Abengoa, the international company that applies innovative technology solutions for sustainable development in the energy and environment sectors. The company will fulfil the engineering, procurement, integration and construction (EPC) needs of wave power and […]
The project partners behind Shetland’s first wave power scheme said that the Scottish Government decision to approve a major wind farm on the island gives the proposal a significant boost. The 10 megawatt (MW) Aegir Wave Power scheme, backed by European energy company Vattenfall and Edinburgh based technology developer Pelamis Wave Power (PWP), could only […]
Monitoring the environment at sea in a region where waves are usually some five metres high is obviously challenging. That is what Vattenfall plans to do off the coast of the Shetland Islands in Scotland, the site of the company’s first wave-energy farm. The location for the wave energy farm was chosen because of the […]
Vattenfall today announced that it had signed up the last remaining berth at the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC), Scotland’s world leading ocean energy research and development centre on Orkney to test a Pelamis wave energy converter. Vattenfall’s announcement stated that they hope to start testing a Pelamis machine in 2014, and confirmed previous statements […]
Aegir Wave Power, in collaboration with the Shetland Islands Council and the Shetland Charitable Trust, have produced a new information document giving an overview of the Aegir Project.
