Meeting the world's need for renewable energy is essential in securing a sustainable future for the planet. Wave energy will complete the renewable energy mix and it is on track to produce ten percent of the global energy demand in the upcoming decades.
Third party validation and certification of products and procedures makes WaveRoller® a pioneer for the entire wave energy industry. The cooperation with strong industrial partners such as Lloyd's Register® and DNV-GL® ensure excellence in key areas, namely reliability and high availability. WaveRoller is currently following a Certification programme by Lloyd's Register Energy for a full industrial Certification of WaveRoller technology.
WaveRoller technology is designed to have minimal impact on the environment and marine life. The emission-free device has a low visual impact as most of it is submerged. AW-Energy has carried out a full range of environmental monitoring procedures ranging from sediment movement to subsea noise levels. A life cycle assessment of the device is ongoing.
AW-Energy is a pioneer in the green economy and is the global leader in wave energy technology. Its flagship product, WaveRoller®, is a submerged wave energy converter based on a hinged panel that is attached to the sea bed in the near shore area. It generates electricity from the movement of the waves (surge phenomenon) and is connected to the electric grid onshore. The company is based in Finland, and operates in multiple continents cooperating with strong industrial partners including e.g. Lloyd's Register, Wärtsilä, DCNS and DNV-GL. The company employs a highly professional and efficient team that manages a network of over 100 engineers and technical staff.
