Innovation Voucher Progress
Innovation Voucher and Environmental studies for our Renewable Energy idea are progressing well with reports near to ‘draft’ status. Hopefully these can be reviewed over the next month in order to put the final reports together. This will allow us to put together a Business Plan and Proposal that will enable WASP to move the project forward.
Work is now progressing on a 1:40 scale Prototype of our second ‘Sustainable Renewable Energy’ device. Again the emphasis is on simplicity of Design, Manufacture and Maintenance for this sea based system. Initial installation will be more complex than our first idea but once installed there will be few moving parts, all using existing technology, and the system will have a nominal Environmental ‘footprint’.
Prototype manufacture is being carried out by Alan Newton Yachts who also completed our preliminary ‘Proof of Concept’ prototypes for the first system.
