Local technology company awarded yet another prize for scientific innovation

The FLASC project, supported by Medserv plc, has won yet another first prize award, this time by the Ministry for the Economy, Investment and Small Business who organised the Innovation Awards ceremony for local innovative projects related to science, technology and craftsmanship.

The FLASC project was awarded the first prize for scientific innovation. During the event, the installation process of the prototype at Dock 1 was shown.

FLASC is being developed with financial support from the Malta Council for Science and Technology, using the FUSION Programme. Medserv plc is an industrial partner in the project.

FLASC uses pressurised seawater and compressed air to store energy from offshore renewable resources. It is best suited for floating systems since it integrates directly into the platform itself. Potential applications include floating wind, solar PV, wave and tidal energy systems, along with liquefaction of natural gas, water injection in oil wells and desalination.

A small-scale prototype was recently deployed in the Dock 1 area of Cospicua.

The research team includes Tonio Sant from the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Robert Farrugia from the Institute for Sustainable Energy, Post-Doctoral Researchers Daniel Farrugia and Federica Strati, student Luke Aquilina and engineering graduate Daniel Farrugia
