Wave Energy Resource Assessment is essential to have a reliable prediction o f the power output and energy expected from various wave energy devices. The proposed study will characterize the wave energy resource around Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal (TMFT). A combination o f Wave Energy Modelling, Wind (using Hobo Anemometer and Vane as well as a LiDAR system), Wave (Significant Wave Height, Wave Period, and Wave Direction using a Datawell WaveRider Buoy), and pontoon displacement (using Ultrasonic Sensors) measurements will be used. The data from the various sensors deployed in selected locations around TMFT will be processed and analysed. The results o f the study will not only aid in the design and development o f wave energy converters (WECs) appropriately sized for the resources available but also assist in the prediction of the power produced by WECs installed around TMFT.
