Top news, May 29 – June 4, 2017

Tidal Energy Today has compiled the top news from tidal and wave energy industry from May 29 – June 4, 2017.

CorPower wave device feeds power to Swedish grid

The 1:2 scale CorPower S3 resonant wave energy converter delivered the first power in April 2017, while operating in simulated waves using a 500kW Hardware-In-the-Loop (HIL) test rig in CorPower’s integration facility in Stockholm. The dry test program comes ahead of ocean demonstration set to take place in fall 2017 at the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) in Orkney.

Tocardo installs floating tidal device at EMEC

Dutch tidal energy developer Tocardo Tidal Power has completed the installation of its floating tidal platform at the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC). The device will remain at Fall of Warness site producing power until October 31, 2017.

Carnegie charts Mauritian renewable energy path

Carnegie Clean Energy has delivered a renewable energy roadmap for Mauritius, including a detailed design of a wave energy integrated hybrid power station for the island of Rodrigues. The roadmap that provides a pathway towards higher penetration of renewable energy in Mauritius, beyond the current 2025 target of 35% set by its government.

Gallery: Waves4Power connects off Norway

Swedish wave energy developer Waves4Power installed the connection hub and laid the cable to connect the device to the shore in an operation assisted by Olympic Shipping. Waves4Power said the device will be connected and ready to export the power via the hub shortly.

Life DemoWave clears permitting hurdles

Life DemoWave project has secured a permit to deploy wave energy converters for trials at the experimental site in Punta Langosteira, off the coast of Galicia, Spain. The Life DemoWave team also said it is currently working on the construction of two 25kW prototypes, which will be deployed at the site to demonstrate the viability of using wave energy converters for power production.
