Albatern’s journey started with the vision of David Findlay, who is now the company’s Chief Technology Officer.
WaveNET is a radical new solution to the problem of economically viable wave energy harvesting. In contrast to the majority of existing approaches, WaveNET is designed to exploit the interactions between absorbers within a coupled, modular and scaleable three-dimensional structure that offers a step change technology with more efficient operation at lower cost.
The system has been under active development since 2007 and Albatern have now built an experienced and multi-disciplinary engineering team comprising 15 engineers from hydrodynamic analysis through design and production to marine operations.
The company continues to develop key expertise in the analysis and design of large articulated offshore structures, hydraulic networks and MVDC electrical collection and distribution grids as well as pioneering new mooring system designs and marine operations techniques.
