Waves4Power Connects WaveEL to Norwegian Grid

Waves4Power  has connected its wave energy system to shore at Runde and started to deliver electricity to the Norwegian power grid on Friday.

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.

This is a full-scale demonstration installation and the first step towards commercial serial production, the company said.

The serial production site will be based at Fiskåholmen shipyard in Vanylven municipality in Norway, while the Stryvo Group will be responsible for the production.

WaveEL device produces electricity using hydraulic pump which is connected to the accumulator that feeds a hydraulic motor with a generator, which in turn converts the hydraulic pressure to electric power.
