What does it take to build the world’s largest wave energy test-rig? 

While bringing its groundbreaking Wave Energy Converter (WEC) technology into commercial scale systems over the last three years, CorPower has also developed an on-land test-rig capable of accurately simulating wave loading from any ocean site around the world.    The ocean is a fierce and unforgiving environment. All too often we have witnessed pioneers deploying solutions at sea before being thoroughly tested on land, only to go on and fail. Many risks involved in deploying first-of-a-kind systems can be eliminated if machines are rigorously tested and debugged in a controlled machine hall environment before ocean deployment.   CorPower’s first commercial scale WEC called C4 has a diameter […]
