The SWEL team have today announced the official specification for their proposed WM9.1 concept WEC. It will be approx. 56m in length by 3m in width. The device plans show it will consist of 84 platforms and accommodate around 25 double-acting pumps on board. It is estimated to weigh approximately 1.5 tonnes.
The team are now in receipt of all the components after a gruelling few months of sourcing supplies and component design that will ensure the device remains seaworthy and functional for demonstration of its proposed 8 week sea trial.
