Wave Buoy Measurements on a Hexapod

efficiency of anti-roll tanks, sloshing in liquefied natural gas (LNG) tanks, safety of cruise ship swimming pools or drop tests with a free-fall lifeboat from a moving platform.   As the positioning system of the hexapod is very accurate, another useful application is the validation of measurement equipment. Recently, MARIN used it to evaluate the measurement accuracy of a Datawell wave buoy for Shell and Woodside. Wave buoys are occasionally used in conditions outside their design range, in very long or short waves. The hexapod tests proved very useful to gain more insight into the limits and

performance for external verification. Independent verification of the WaveRoller power matrix signifies a major milestone for near-shore wave energy converters on their way to commercialization and large scale deployment. The WaveRoller device is equipped with a large array of sensor and measurement equipment that monitor the operating conditions and performance of the device. The recorded data is instantly available in the control room in Portugal, as well as by remote connection. The 2012 and 2013 grid-connected and fully operational hours delivered much data for various device settings and
