Anders Jansson has been named Commercial Director of the Swedish wave energy company CorPower Ocean.
Jansson, former CEO of Swedish tidal energy developer Minesto, who resigned from the company beginning of 2016, has now taken up the role of Commercial Director at CorPower, the Swedish wave energy developer informed.
“I am particularly excited to become part of the CorPower team allowing me to continue developing game-changing projects in the marine energy sector,” said Jansson.
CorPower’s half-scale device is currently undergoing dry-testing in Stockholm, which will be followed by the deployment at EMEC.
CorPower’s buoys oscillate in resonance with incoming waves, and by using the WaveSpring phase control technology which amplifies waves’ motion, the device significantly increases the power capture, which is then converted to electricity, according to CorPower Ocean.
