FlanSea WAVE PIONEER Launched in Belgium

FlanSea is a unique collaboration, set up with support from the Flemish Agency for Innovation by Science and Technology IWT, by the University of Ghent, the Ostend Port Authority “and a number of Flemish companies, including DEME Blue Energy, Cloostermans, Electrawinds, Spiromatic and Contec.

Together they are developing the WAVE PIONEER, a wave energy converter.

The WAVE PIONEER is a floating device generating energy from the swell of the waves. It was designed specifically for a moderate wave climate such as Belgian coast.

On 23 April 2013, the FlanSea wave energy converter WAVE PIONEER launched at the Zeewezen Dock in the port of Ostend. After a few weeks the test device will be moved and installed at approximately 1 kilometre from the coast of Ostend.

The WAVE PIONEER will be tested extensively until the end of 2013 in view of its further development.
