Waves4Power buoy moving

After surviving the storm Gorm, the unique wave energy system has now left Falkvarv in Falkenberg, Sweden, and is now being transported to its final destination outside Norway.

The WEC system was originally planned to leave Falkvarv in the autumn of 2015. The testing process was delayed, however, due to the complicated process of simulating wave movements needing more time to complete.

– Instead of deploying the system without being 100 % sure it would work, we chose to delay the launch, says Ulf Lindelöf, CEO of Waves4Power.

In addition to the now completed controlled test, the WEC system had time to experience a real life situation when the storm Gorm moved in over the moored system in Falkvarv. Even though being exposed to hurricane strength wind forces, the system was still standing upright after the storm. The system is now being towed to Gothenburg where it will wait 2 weeks for transportation to the final destination oustide the island Runde in Norway.
