Umeco Demonstrates Composite Developments for Renewable Energy

18 May 2012

Umeco will be exhibiting its Structural materials and Tooling prepreg technologies for the renewable energy market at the 2012 All-Energy show in the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre - Bridge of Don, Aberdeen on the 23 and 24 May, from their Stand F89.

According to Umeco, the stand will feature a 1/72 scale model of the Sea-Spider, Renewergen’s 70m diameter 6.5 MW vertical axis tidal energy device designed to capture the energy that is contained within a large moving body of water. Simon Sanderson and his business partner David Loughlin have been awarded a £100,000 grant from the East of England Development Agency (EEDA) and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) to develop their Sea-Spider technology.

Umeco say they were chosen by Renewergen as their preferred composites partner for the project both for their ability to customise and engineer their prepregs for specific end applications, and for their experience in the tidal energy generation sector.

Umeco explain that they will be promoting their advanced Variable Temperature Moulding (VTM) and Medium Temperature Moulding (MTM) resin systems and flexible production methodology at the show.

Richard Horn, Renewable Energy Sector Manager, Umeco, said“We are keen to promote our ‘Concept to Reality’ service to new and existing device developers in all sectors of the renewable energy market. Umeco has considerable expertise and offers assistance with design analysis, tooling, prototyping and pilot production, as well as being able to supply material for any project, regardless of its size or complexity.  All-Energy is the ideal exhibition to showcase our latest product developments. We look forward to another successful event.”
