Wave Energy Scotland (WES) is seeking an independent third party advisor to conduct engineering appraisal for all novel wave energy converter stage 2 projects.

The scope of work will include an independent engineering assessment of the engineering development activities undertaken at WES.

It will consider a preliminary design review (PDR) of the concept engineering for a full-scale device, and a critical design review (CDR) of the front end engineering design (FEED) for a small sea-going prototype.

The suitably qualified individual, organisation or consortium to act as the third party advisor to WES will provide appraisal expected to raise the confidence in the quality of the engineering design activities undertaken, and technical readiness to proceed to stage 3.

The deadline for applying to the tender is set for April 28, 2017.

WES is a subsidiary of Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE), established and fully funded by the Scottish government with the aim to accelerate the development of wave energy sector in Scotland.
