Our expertise in ocean technology and renewable energy has positioned BMT as a lead technical expert for the offshore engineering design of various wave energy technologies and next generation tidal energy device concepts.
We have worked with various organisations, government and funding agencies providing them with specialist technical due diligence services and sound technical advice relating to mechanical and electrical engineering, naval architecture, marine structures, ocean engineering and geotechnical, in relation to wave and tidal energy devices.
With our extensive experience, BMT are well positioned to provide various services to the wave energy industry. We offer environmental assessment and permitting services to enable wave energy projects to be deployed and operated in the water. We carry out engineering design from concept to detailed design for unique wave energy plant, including mechanical, electrical and naval architecture engineering. Working for the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) we have undertaken technical due diligence review of various ocean energy technologies being developed by Australian organisations, including numerous wave energy devices. BMT is strongly connected to the wave energy sector via our industry and research institutions connections.
We provide organisations with early stage design support for next generation tidal device concepts. With our expertise and experience we have assisted Rolls Royce with turbine performance and design calculations support for a low head tidal turbine for a tidal fence across the Severn River in the UK. BMT also provided a technical justification for the contra-rotating turbine concept, and developed analytical code for optimising the design.
