A&P's key role in tidal energy project
4:44pm Monday 18th February 2013 in News
A&P Falmouth is part of a new project to design and develop a vessel to make the installation of tidal energy devices easier and more cost effective.
The renewable energy project has been awarded a grant of £1.5m by the Technology Strategy Board to design, develop and commission a barge equipped with a sophisticated Dynamic Positioning (DP) system and with the capacity to install devices in the most challenging, high energy tidal sites.
A&P will provide a dry dock for the barge in Falmouth and contribute its shipbuilding expertise and knowledge of quayside operations and vessel conversion to the production management and development process.
