Marine Energy

MMI delivers operational excellence in a pioneering industry.

The marine energy industry presents a new set of technical and safety challenges. Solving these requires a thorough understanding of complex marine energy systems design issues and the ability to apply sound engineering principals. MMI staff have been developing new technologies for frontier ocean energy projects for over 30 years and continue to provide innovative solutions to this industry.

MMI is recognised for contributions to the development of analytical methods that are required to fully understand the complex nature of marine energy systems subject to harsh environmental conditions. MMI specialises in applying advanced analytical methods to achieve fit-for-purpose marine energy systems. MMI’s services in this area include:

  • FEED, preliminary and detailed design
  • Design certification and verification
  • Owner’s engineer representation

MMI specialises in analysis of foundations, and fixed and floating support structures used for offshore wave, tidal and current energy systems.

MMI is also working with the developer of a wave energy farm to address the risk management issues associated with the deployment of an array of energy conversion devices and the associated switchgear and cabling. This includes preparing safe systems of work addressing isolation and earthing, and simultaneous operations issues.
