Composite World reports on CorPower’s novel Mobile Filament Winding System

Global media platform Composite World has completed an in-depth report on CorPower’s industrial-scale wave energy converters. The 9-meter-long WECs are designed for high-efficiency, durable wave energy generation and fast, on-site manufacture. Following years of test and development, CorPower identified Filament-Wound GFRP (Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer) composites as the most efficient and cost-effective solution to manufacture commercial-scale hulls. After […]

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 […]

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, […]

Article about us in OE Digital

Swedish firm CorPower Ocean, one of the new generation of firms, also uses buoy technology, to absorb energy from the surge and heave of waves with its HiWave resonant WEC. But, it has sought to get out more with less using phase control, to enable it to oscillate in resonance with incoming waves. It does […]

The Wonder Bouy that might finally make wave energy feasible

WITH ALL THAT to-and-fro and ebb-and-flow, the motions of the ocean offer an endless supply of renewable energy. Or they would, if engineers could figure out how to capture that power. Most prototypes for wave-energy converters have been massive and costly, or else they’re torn apart during violent storms at sea. But a Swedish company […]
