EMEC to help Seabased get wave-to-grid system ready for certification

Source: Seabased AB

February 5 (Renewables Now) - The European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) will design and execute a testing programme to support the certification of Swedish wave energy company Seabased AB’s wave-to-grid system, the latter said today.

Under a newly signed deal, EMEC will review Seabased’s technology and provide advice on how to meet its certification objectives in a timely and cost-effective manner, the announcement says.

The Interreg North Sea Region Ocean Energy Scale-up Alliance (OESA) project, an accelerator programme focused on deploying large-scale marine energy pilots, has funded in part this collaboration.

Seabased noted it previously demonstrated both its wave energy converter and wave-to-grid system in Sweden and Ghana. The firm added that a certified process will allow for a reduction in manufacturing costs, logistics and transport, and provide a faster track to local permitting and insurance.
