Archimedes Wave Swing
In 1993 Teamwork Technology started with a project to get energy from the ocean waves. The Archimedes Wave Swing was in many ways the world’s largest wave energy prototype. Although the project started as a technology development, it ended up becoming the development of a fully functioning company in wave power. After a successful demonstration of the technology in Portugal in 2004, a company was started in Scotland where it operated as AWS Ocean Energy Ltd. This company was originally founded by Teamwork Technology and its partners. The initial project was supported by NUON. In 2002 NUON pulled out and the project was bought back by the original founders. It is thanks to this project that Teamwork Technology has earned its status as expert in wave energy. The experience and knowledge from this project lives on in the New Wave Energy project launched in late 2010.
