Apollo’s growing reputation supporting the energy transition, led us to supporting Bombora with harnessing wave energy.
Apollo was tasked with designing the main structure of Bombora’s full-scale, 1.5MW mWave Pembrokshire Demonstration Project, wave energy converter device.
mWave sits below the ocean surface like a fully submerged reef making it invisible while extracting maximum energy. The mWave is non-disruptive to ocean users and marine life and can survive stormy conditions. After an initial foundation study, our expert structural designers and engineers developed the concept design for mWave’s main structure. This led into detailed design, where Apollo delivered a full suite of drawings, calculations, assembly and commissioning instructions and an operations and maintenance manual.
This unique design challenge enabled Apollo to demonstrate a cost-effective and quality service where complex interfaces with other mechanical parts such as the cell modules and power take-off device challenged and excited the team.
As a dynamic consultancy, we are able to add additional resources quickly, such as additional engineers and designers to ensure it met the revised deadline and scope.
