Local wave energy developer Weptos has deployed its wave energy device in the Little Belt strait, off the east coast of Denmark.

The V‐shaped wave energy device has been put to trials in a strait between the island of Funen and the Jutland Peninsula which connects to the Baltic Sea earlier this August, according to Tommy Larsen, Chief Executive Officer of Weptos.

Weptos’ wave energy system being tested is comprised of anchoring, connectivity, safety equipment, storm protection, inspection and maintenance, along with power take-off and performance solutions.

“Everything is under test and has already shown very convincing results. The planned performance tests have been launched and are expected to be completed by the end of the year,” Larsen said in a social media update.

The system absorbs the wave energy through a line of rotors, where each of them transmits the energy to a common axle, directly attached to a generator, according to Weptos.
