WaveWalker 1 working in the Tidal and Wave Industries
Converting the energy from tides and waves into other forms of power, such as electricity, is considered to hold significant potential for future electricity generation.
These marine operations can create significant challenges, as every area from site investigation, to construction and asset maintenance needs to be carried out in conditions where traditional floating barges and self-elevating working platforms (SEWPs) are unable to operate.
WaveWalker 1 provides an innovative, industry-first solution for those working in the tidal and wave power industries. Its self-contained, 8-legged walking jack-up design means it can work in surf zones and rocky or tidal areas, by safely and securely walking into position.
By working independently in all weathers along the shoreline and in confined areas, WaveWalker 1 can reduce project timescales, risks and costs. The platform can be tailored to fit each project, which can include live-aboard accommodation to reduce crew-transfer downtime and improve health and safety.

👷 It has been brilliant to see the local community taking a real interest in the WaveWalker. With the foundations of the new sea wall now in place, we look forward to continuing with our work to provide improved resilience for the railway line for generations to come.
