SCORE Funds Marine Power Systems’ WaveSub

first_imgGrant programme, Supply Chain innovation for Offshore Renewable Energy (SCORE), has announced Marine Power Systems’ WaveSub as the latest innovation to receive funding.Marine Power Systems was founded with the sole purpose of developing and bringing to market the novel, patent protected wave energy converter ‘WaveSub’.The award winning WaveSub has four key USPs which solve the main challenges facing those trying to exploit wave energy. Firstly, the WaveSub addresses the difficulty of harnessing the power through its advanced energy capture system. Secondly, it has excellent survivability which is key in the harsh offshore environment. Thirdly, the delivery system makes the WaveSub quick and simple to transport, install and maintain. Finally, and crucially, the simple design of the WaveSub has a low capital cost.The innovative WaveSub has the potential to substantially reduce the costs associated with generating energy from waves, which could in the future provide access to the vast renewable global resource that is the power of the waves.The initial project to design, manufacture and test the prototype WaveSub was followed by a detailed desk engineering project to fully understand the cost of energy that it is likely to deliver.The next step was to start looking for £2.5m of funding in order to further develop the WaveSub and manufacture a ¼ scale prototype. Having begun seeking further investment at the end of March 2014 it is really testament to the credibility of WaveSub that £1.2m of this pot has already been secured allowing the project to get well underway.One of the sources was the SCORE grant funding scheme which has provided Marine Power Systems with a £9k grant. This particular pot is being used to secure intellectual property rights in this key period whilst further funding is sought.Dr Gareth Stockman, Managing Director of Marine Power Systems, commented: “We are delighted to have already secured 50% of the funding we are seeking and this grant from the SCORE programme is integral in leveraging further investment.“Applying for funding from the SCORE programme was straight forward and very swift compared to other grant applications and we were delighted to receive approval so quickly as well.”The SCORE programme delivers a £2.5 million funding investment through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). SCORE grants range from £2,500 up to a maximum of 30% of the project’s eligible costs, or £50,000, whichever is the lower, and are available to all East Anglian based SMEs in the renewable energy supply chain.Richard Salmon, project manager and business adviser for SCORE says: “Marine Power System’s WaveSub has the potential to significantly change the renewable wave power industry and we are thrilled to be able to assist them in keeping everything patent protected at this key stage in the product’s journey.“We know many businesses can be deterred from applying for funding because of the perceived length of time needed to complete the application. That’s not the case with SCORE. Our team of industry specialists are available to support companies and start-ups throughout the process by finding out more about their innovative ideas, evaluating funding viability and then assisting with the development of a funding business case. We hope as we announce further recipients of SCORE funding other potential recipients will be encouraged to contact us.” Press release, August 21, 2014; Image: OrbisEnergylast_img read more

Thanks, grammar police. Share on other sites 320 Recommended Posts Members I was looking through the clearance jerseys on NHL.com, and the Flames 3rd jersey was in there with those that are being tossed for the season. The mooterus, Bruins 3rd, Atlanta home, Ducks, and BUffalo were in there, but I wasn’t sure why the Flames’ alt was there. Are they getting rid of those, or is it just in there to get rid of some overstock?

Boston is doing the same thing and so is vancouver. besides I have not heard that the leafs, rangers, avs, kings and wild have canceled theirs so technicaly the third jersey program is still going. right?? I’m not sure on that so correct me if I am wrong. 0 16,708 posts Link to post Favourite Logos:Anything with a mascot in a sweater or anthropomorphic foods.

Dutch not favourites against struggling Germany – Van Dijk

first_imgThe Netherlands will not be lulled into a false sense of security when they face a struggling, new-look Germany in their Euro 2020 qualifier in Amsterdam on Sunday, captain Virgil van Dijk has said.The Dutch beat the Germans 3-0 at home last October and came from behind with two late goals to force a 2-2 draw away in Gelsenkirchen one month later to win a place in the Nations League finals.The contrast in form continued this week when Van Dijk was among the scorers as the Netherlands beat Belarus 4-0 in Rotterdam on Thursday in their opening Group C qualifier, a day after Germany proved unconvincing in a 1-1 draw at home to Serbia in a warm-up international.“It does look like the Germans are still in a building phase but don’t forget that the Dutch side is also going through the same process,” Van Dijk said on the eve of the game at the Amsterdam Arena.“The Germans still have fantastic players even if they might be talking over there (in Germany) about a crisis. We also had a spell like that, where things did not go for us,” added Van Dijk, referring to his team’s failure to reach the 2016 European Championship in France and last year’s World Cup in Russia.“That was not a good phase. But we must worry about ourselves and not Germany. I don’t think we are favourites but that is up to you members of the media to decide.”The Dutch are, however, in confident mood after Thursday’s comfortable victory.“At times we played really good football but it can, and it must be, a lot better on Sunday,” said Van Dijk. “There were times where we did not put enough pressure on them and were sloppy and lost the ball.“Against Germany we can expect a completely different game and we all realise that. We know what we are capable of.”last_img read more
