Waves4Power presentation

During the first week of February, Waves4Power will have a complete wave energy system moored at the harbor in Gothenburg before shipping to the deployment site outside Ålesund in Norway.

Seaflex has been a strategic partner of the Waves4Power project since the start, in charge of developing a elastic mooring solution capable of withstanding enourmous waves (up to 30 meters high) for a extended amount of time without needing constant maintenance and repairs. We have been publishing updates about this project, and the first complete wave energy system is now ready for deployment. Waves4Power now invites everyone to a presentation and public viewing of the system in Gothenburg, Sweden.

From the Waves4Power press release: “This is the result of years of development, design, construction, and testing, and we proudly present the result at Eriksberg, as well as at Volvo’s quayside at Arendal. Along with BRG, OffshoreVäst, the Swedish Technical Research Institute, and Chalmers University of Technology, we invite the business community to a seminar on February 5th at the Quality Hotel 11. Waves4Power will then have an open viewing for the public at Eriksberg’s quayside during the 5th and 6th of February (10.00-17.00). After this viewing, the Olympic Zeus, one of Norway’s largest offshore vessels, will pick up the wave energy system at Arendal for transport to Norway.

Waves4Power intends for this to showcase not only marine research and fossil free energy production, but new industrial opportunities in Gothenburg as well. The aim is to give Gothenburg a glimpse of the future and the realization of new environmental technologies.”
