WaveFarm creates an Industrial package for customers
Energy utilities must acquire new reliable renewable energy power plants to meet national GHG emission reduction targets. They are also facing significant challenges replacing expiring capacity as fossil fuel plants reach the end of their lifespans. At the same time, demand for electricity is increasing, requiring the development of additional generation capacity. This must be done while maintaining grid stability. Conventional renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind, are intermittent, and must be supported by new and more reliable renewables.
AW-Energy WaveRoller WaveFarms are the most advanced wave energy technology solution. WaveFarms are large arrays of 10 to 24 WaveRoller units.
The WaveFarm project is created by AW-Energy Oy and funded by the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund to create an industrial package comprising the WaveRoller wave energy converters, all WaveFarm infrastructure, logistics, life-cycle services, product documentation and everything else that the customer needs to produce indigenous stable renewable energy.
AW-Energy harnesses the power of the ocean
AW-Energy produces the WaveRoller wave energy converter. WaveRoller provides a reliable and predictable source of renewable energy to the energy system that compliments more intermittent technologies such as wind and solar. WaveRoller taps the unused ocean energy resource that is readily available also for many locations where other renewable energy sources cannot be fully utilised due to limited available on-shore area or other considerations.
