Wave & Tidal Energy

The wave and tidal energy industry is expected to experience significant growth in the US in the next decade, moving from prototype devices to grid connected demonstration units.
Wave and tidal sites present some unique data acquisition challenges and require innovation and careful planning to provide high-quality data at exposed sites with high current speeds and energetic wave conditions.

Partrac has a strong track record of working with wave and tidal energy developers. We have undertaken numerous tidal resource assessments and environmental surveys at high-energy sites across the UK and Europe and are fully capable of undertaking similar surveys in the US.

Partrac provides the following services to the wave and tidal industry:

  • Oceanographic survey
  • Turbulence data acquisition
  • Sediment and scour monitoring
  • Management of geotechnical investigations
  • Baseline environmental survey
