Wave-Tricity Ltd intends to construct a full-scale concrete hybrid generation platform, which will be a large and complex build. The platform hull will be a multi-decked ship-shaped barge with superstructure circa 100m x 25m x 10m and will be constructed from marine grade concrete.
There are several construction methodologies available to build this type of structure, each with varying advantages and disadvantages with respect to the design of the platform hull. The requirement is to conduct a construction feasibility study to provide the Wave-Tricity Ltd design team with a recommended construction methodology prior to starting detailed engineering. This will minimise design risk and cost during the next phase of works and allow for early engagement with potential fabrication sites for the platform
