The RiCORE (Risk Based Consenting for Offshore Renewable Energy Projects) project has been awarded €1.4 million from the European Commission’s competitive Horizon 2020 programme. Led by Robert Gordon University (RGU), a group comprising teams from Ireland, Spain, Portugal, France and Scotland will look at ways of accelerating and streamlining the environmental requirements associated with consents for […]
A new collaborative project, Cost of Energy Assessment for Wave, Tidal, and OTEC at an International Level, funded by the OES, has been initiated by a consortium led by the University of Edinburgh (UK) with two partners - WavEC Offshore Renewables (PORTUGAL) and Julia F. Chozas (DENMARK) - and three advisors: RAMBOLL Group A/S (DENMARK), FOT-K […]
Portugal and the United States of America have joined efforts in 2014 to organize the WavEC Annual Seminar entitled “Fostering Transatlantic Growth of Marine Renewables". The conference is organized in collaboration with the Embassy of the United States of America and American Chamber of Commerce in Portugal supported under the high patronage of His Excellency, […]
On July 29, WavEC Offshore Renewables successfully launched the first prototype of the offshore monitoring buoy being developed under the KIC-OTS program in Algés at the mouth of the river Tagus, Portugal. The operation was a result of two years of research, design and implementation. The buoy has been designed and equipped to aid in the […]
Grant scheme Supply Chain Innovation for Offshore Renewable Energy (SCORE) has named the first three East Anglian SMEs to bag funding. North-Norfolk based offshore wind farm specialist Tidal Transit will pocket £48,000 from the grant programme to back the development of the latest addition to its fleet. The vessel is being developed in collaboration with […]
A boat with suspension inspired by Paris Dakar-winning rally cars that can remain stable and a 'seahorse' vessel consisting of a towering keel that minimises movements in the ocean swell are two of the six innovative concepts that will receive further funding from the Carbon Trust's Offshore wind Accelerator (OWA), its flagship collaborative RD&D programme. […]
A project to create a network of excellence that will dynamize a pool of specialized research professionals and trainees in support of emerging offshore wind industry in Portugal has secured funding under the EU Horizon 2020 Framework Programme. The TWIND project is coordinated by the Portugal-based WavEC Offshore Renewables and gathers three other internationally recognized research […]
CorPower, a developer of a wave energy converter inspired by the pumping principles of the human heart, has completed a €6.5M funding round, thus securing a critical investment for the next stage of the company’s development and allowing for the third round of testing of its wave energy technology, called the HiWave. Results from the second stage of HiWave […]
The Swedish Energy Agency has granted the company Corpower Ocean AB 2 million EUR to conduct tests of its innovative concept for wave power. The project is part of a larger collaboration with KIC InnoEnergy, the Spanish energy company Iberdrola and the Portuguese Research Institute WavEC Offshore Renewables. Corpower will build a new prototype wave […]
The European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) is hosting a session at the Atlantic Stakeholder Conference in Porto, Portugal next week (Tuesday, 20th January 2015).

CorPower Ocean AB was founded in 2009 by Dr. Stig Lundbäck, after he had spent about 30 years of his life imagining and designing various kinds of high efficiency pumping systems. Contrary to what might be expected, Dr. Lundbäck is not an engineer, but a medical doctor with a deep passion for the pumping principles […]
The development of floating offshore wind will be held up by the limitations of current port infrastructure, a recent research has revealed.
Fern Communications has won a contract to provide its radio communication system during the construction of ScottishPower Renewables' East Anglia One offshore wind farm.
A consortium led by LOC Group has been selected by the Floating Wind Joint Industry Project (JIP) to investigate the infrastructure and logistics challenges faced in the development, construction and maintenance of utility-scale floating offshore wind farms. The investigation report and recommendations, which has been commissioned by the Carbon Trust and JIP partners DONG Energy, ENGIE, […]
WaveCom, a new radio communications system to serve the East of England’s growing offshore wind farm construction industry, has won a GBP 50,000 grant as part of the Supply Chain Innovation for Offshore Renewable Energy (SCORE) programme.
