CorPower completes world’s largest wave energy test-rig

CorPower has constructed the world’s largest wave energy test-rig following an intense two-year project.  The 45-tonne moving mass system, installed at CorPower’s Stockholm base, is capable of simulating ocean wave conditions anywhere in the world. The design, build and accreditation has been supported by key supplier ABB and accrediting body DNV.  Measuring 40m in length and 9m in width, the system will play a fundamental role supporting CorPower’s flagship HiWave-5 demonstration project, […]

Major new Oregon facility could transform US wave energy prospects

  Several reports in recent weeks have demonstrated major appetite for marine renewables on the US West Coast, as the energy transition continues to intensify.  A CNBC report focusing on the Oregon-based PacWave initiative helped spread word to the masses about wave energy’s potential contribution to the future green energy mix.  The open-ocean wave energy test site will have two separate facilities: PacWave North, for small-scale and prototype technologies, and the larger PacWave South. The latter is currently under development after attracting grants from both […]
