Offshore power generation models

The government is to make big changes to the way it subsidises renewable energy, it has announced. BBC news 4/12/13.  As market leaders in the field of producing offshore power generation models we are obviously interested in this subject and thought it might be a good moment to remind the world of some of the work we have done in the area.

Amalgam are of course well known for scale models and exhibition pieces such as the e.on offshore wind generation model display shown in the header to this article, a closer view of the same model is on the left here. We also produced a range of scale models of the Seagen Offshore power generation design shown in the three images below.Offshore power generation models - Seagen model

We also have a long history of producing functional prototypes and test rigs such as this Spectral Marine Energy Converter (SMEC) working scale model which we designed and built for Verderg.
