EU Commissioner Vella tours WaveRoller test centre

EU Commissioner for Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Karmenu Vella has visited WaveRoller test facility in Järvenpää, Finland.

The visit was organized as part of European Maritime Day 2016.

The Commissioner and some representatives for the top-level of Finnish industry, followed a real-life demonstration of the wave machine and a presentation of the WaveRoller technology.

AW-Energy, wave energy developer behind WaveRoller technology, said Vella was impressed by the technology readiness of the WaveRoller.

The Järvenpää facility is purpose-built to test and fine-tune full-scale power take-off systems up to 1 MW.

The wave machine at Järvenpää consists of a giant hydraulic piston that simulates the power of natural waves in the ocean, and the full-scale wave machine can be programmed to run any stochastic wave state up to 2 MW.

This unit is connected to the power take-off of the WaveRoller, a sophisticated hydraulic circuit running an electric generator.
