PRESS RELEASE: WORLD UNIQUE WAVE POWER BREAKTHROUGH

Information from Waves 4 Power:

June 2nd, 2017, is a milestone for fossil free energy in general and for Waves4Power in particular. Today the Waves4Power wave energy system was connected to shore and started to deliver electricity to the Norwegian power grid. This took place at Runde on the Norwegian west coast; an optimal place for wave power with its abundance of strong waves.

The Waves4Power wave energy system consists of the WaveEL buoy, a connection hub, and custom designed proprietary marine cables from the buoy to the hub, and from the hub to shore. The cable from the hub to shore is 3 km long. The complete system is the result of years of development work, prototypes, and testing. This is a full-scale demonstration installation and the first step towards commercial serial production. The serial production site will be at Fiskåholmen shipyard in Vanylven municipality. Stryvo Group AS, Stryn is responsible for the production.

If we can make it here we’ll make it anywhere

The WaveEL buoy was deployed at Runde in February 2016. A week after deployment, the system was challenged with 14 m high waves at the launch site. This is what we call a real live test of system survival even though the mooring system’s design parameters are for substantially larger waves than this. In April and May of 2017 the complete system was finally installed on site and connected to the land-based power grid. Runde Environment Centre and Tussa Energy, the local power company, have played important roles in making this possible. The marine operations have been planned, supervised, and performed by BlueOrbis AB and Olympic Shipping AS.

Important success factors

Waves4Power has built a unique network of industrial partner companies. Each partner company is an industry leader in their respective field of business and they take full responsibility for their solutions in the complete wave energy system.  This collaborative approach to the work adds immeasurable credibility to Waves4Power and speeds up the development process.

Ny nettstad

Ny nettstad og facebooksider for Havenergisenteret / Welcome to our new webpage!

Havenergisenteret har fått ny og oppdatert nettstad. 

Runde Miljøsenter har no ferdigstilt arbeidet med å lage til ny nettstad og oppretta facebooksider for havenergisenteret.no.

Målgruppene har vore i fokus, og vi har delt inn sida i to funksjonar. Ein for utdanning og skular, og ein for industrien som gjere prosjekt ilag med Runde Miljøsenter og Havenergisenteret.

Vi tek gjerne imot attendemelding på sida vår! 

Nytt Testområde For Bølgjekraft

I mars lanserte Siva (Selskapet for industrivekst) ei ny støtteordning, kalt Norsk katapult. No har 38 næringsmiljø søkt om opptak til den nye ordninga

I mars lanserte Siva (Selskapet for industrivekst) ei ny støtteordning, kalt Norsk katapult. No har 38 næringsmiljø søkt om opptak til den nye ordninga.

Regjeringa har satt av 50 millioner til etablering av testsentre for små og mellomstore bedrifter, slik at nye løsninger kan testes i industriell skala.

Runde Miljøsenter ynskjer å etablere eit Norsk katapultsenter for havenergi ute på Runde.

Vi fekk dessverre ikkje tilslaget denne gangen.

SIVA varslar at dei vil ha ei ny runde til neste år der alle kan søkje om å bli Norsk katapultsenter
