Title: VERY LARGE SCALE WAVE ENERGY GENERATION AND ALTERNATIVE GENERATION TECHNOLOGIES
Published by: Wave Energy Scotland Limited
Publication Date: 14/11/2017
Deadline Date: 09/01/2018
Deadline Time: 12:00
Notice Type: 02 Contract Notice (below OJEU threshold)
Has Documents: Yes
Abstract: WES invites suitably qualified and experienced suppliers to provide a proposal to address the following requirements during the study, whilst offering best value in the expenditure of public funds. The requirements are divided into two lots. Proposals which use structured evaluation and assessment processes to maximise their ability to identify additional sources of opportunity are likely to score well. Such methods should investigate, among other sources, opportunities which take advantage of specific characteristics of wave energy that differ from other offshore renewable energy
conversion such as, but not limited to, detuning, load shedding or other survival strategies.
Proposals should include an early (~3 week) detailed planning phase followed by discussion with WES and agreement of scope for delivery of the remainder of the project.
Lot 1 - Very Large Scale Wave Energy Generation
Lot 2 - Alternative Generation Technologies
CPV: 73000000, 73000000, 73000000.

II.1.4) Short description

WES invites suitably qualified and experienced suppliers to provide a proposal to address the following requirements during the study, whilst offering best value in the expenditure of public funds. The requirements are divided into two lots. Proposals which use structured evaluation and assessment processes to maximise their ability to identify additional sources of opportunity are likely to score well. Such methods should investigate, among other sources, opportunities which take advantage of specific characteristics of wave energy that differ from other offshore renewable energy

conversion such as, but not limited to, detuning, load shedding or other survival strategies.

Proposals should include an early (~3 week) detailed planning phase followed by discussion with WES and agreement of scope for delivery of the remainder of the project.

II.2.3) Place of performance

NUTS code:

UK

II.2.4) Description of the procurement

Offshore wind has achieved a great deal of cost reduction through incremental scale-up of turbines in their generation

capacity, however it is believed that technical constraints or cost benefit balance will eventually limit turbine sizes.

Wave energy may be able to make similar strides in competitiveness through scale-up of individual device size and/or

generation capacities and may not be constrained until even greater scale is achieved than offshore wind.

WES therefore invites proposals for landscaping studies to identify and analyse opportunities for development of very

large scale wave energy converters.

II.2.3) Place of performance

NUTS code:

UK

II.2.4) Description of the procurement

The challenge is to identify and analyse opportunities for improved competitiveness through application of alternative

generation technologies to the wave energy sector. Technologies of interest could be those which provide direct

conversion of kinetic or potential energy to electrical energy, such as but not limited to electro active materials,

reducing the number of energy conversion steps and removing significant sub-system capital costs.

The focus of this project should be on the alternative generation technologies and their ability to convert the

appropriate kinetic/potential energy of ocean waves into electrical energy, rather than their ability to conform with

existing wave energy converter architectures.
