3D digital design helps harvest the power of ocean waves

Written by: IMASS | Published:

Autodesk has named Green Ocean Energy Ltd. (Green Ocean), an Imass customer, as the Autodesk Inventor of the Month for April 2009.

Green Ocean, a renewable energy company headquartered in Aberdeen, Scotland, successfully used Autodesk Inventor software in the development of the Ocean Treader and Wave Treader, floating devices that convert the motion of the ocean into clean, renewable energy.

Modelling in 3D - combined with collaboration from Autodesk reseller and training partner Imass - has allowed Green Ocean to efficiently develop working prototypes of the Ocean Treader and Wave Treader. These models have allowed the company to prove its concept through extensive indoor wave-pool testing.
