R&D begins on high efficiency wave power device

Iberdrola Ingeniería, in partnership with Swedish company CorPower Ocean and Portuguese marine research centre WavEc, have begun R&D the HiWave wave energy convertor.

The initiative aims to investigate wave power harnessing using a new type of compact device with improved control technology, and as a result, design an offshore farm based on this technology.
CorPower, a specialist in wave energy converters, will design the device, while Iberdrola Ingeniería will be in charge of developing the offshore farm, and WavEc will provide analysis and validation support during the various stages.
HiWave has a budget of €15 million and will be completed in 2016.
This project is partly funded by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) through one of its knowledge and innovation communities (KIC InnoEnergy).
