II.2.4) Description of the procurement

WES is exploring options for the design and development of a system which will allow rapid connection/disconnection of a wave energy device from its moorings and/or electrical system. The connection system and method would aim to reduce the time and cost of installation and marine operations relating to a wave energy project.

Technology transfer from other sectors is welcomed where solutions to similar challenges may have already been addressed.

This Notice mainly relates to a potential funding Call based on the recommendations of two projects completed on behalf of Wave Energy Scotland in 2018. Details on a potential exercise relating to the potential procurement of external experts is also included.

Further details have been provided in the additional document attached to this Notice.

II.2.14) Additional information

The final report for each of the two projects detailed in II.2.4 can be found online on the WES Knowledge Library (basic user registration required).
