ETI Project partner GL Garrad Hassan launch WaveDyn

GL Garrad Hassan launch WaveDyn – a wave energy converter performance and loading design tool .

WaveDyn is the first fully coupled software platform for the design of wave energy converters. The software enables users to conduct a series of performance and loading calculations for wave energy converter designs. It is an output from PerAWAT - a project commissioned and funded by the ETI and delivered by a consortium of GL Garrad Hassan, EDF Energy, E.ON, The University of Edinburgh, University of Oxford, Queen's University Belfast and The University of Manchester.  PerAWAT is a project focused on producing tools capable of accurately estimating the energy yield of major wave and tidal stream energy converters  to help accurately assess the cost of energy production.
