Blackfish were responsible for the main cell module design in close collaboration with Bombora for their novel mWave device. This work included:

· Concept design of structure, attachment mechanism, and auxiliary systems

· Detailed FEA of the structure for ultimate and fatigue loads

· Complete set of manufacturing drawings


Blackfish also completed the development and manufacture of their novel air valve system. This included:

· Concept design

· Scale prototype manufacture and test, including wind tunnel testing, seal pressure testing and a series of life demonstration rigs to prove fatigue properties of the design for 5m cycles

· Design and FEA of the full scale system



“Blackfish has assisted us with several major scopes to support the design and build of our mWave Demonstrator. We have been impressed with their innovative ideas, excellent communication and proactive approach in identifying solutions to challenging technical requirements. The whole team is extremely professional with a broad range of skills sets covering a number of disciplines. It has been a pleasure working with Blackfish and we highly recommend them to any organisation seeking a team of experienced and competent engineers.”
