October 17, 2003 [SolarAccess.com] Following a summer of offshore testing, the UK-based Stingray ocean energy demonstrator has now been returned to Lerwick and decommissioned. Engineering Business (EB) engineers are now analyzing the data gathered and will soon be presenting the results to the main investors in the project. The project’s manager, Tony Trapp, said that despite many challenges, the project has made significant progress and development work will continue over the winter months as EB enters into planning phase 4 of the project. The demonstrator unit is now being stored in Shetland while the key control and hydraulic systems are being returned to Northumberland. The marine spread will also be heading south although after the exceptional weather this summer, it is currently waiting for a suitable weather window.
