Seabased inks deal for 100MW wave energy park off Ghana

Swedish wave energy company Seabased has been contracted by TC’s Energy, a Ghanaian renewable energy production company, to deliver a wave energy plant near Ada in Ghana.

Under the contract, signed in Brussels on March 20, 2018, Seabased will be tasked with design, manufacture, and installation of the 100MW turnkey wave energy park with an option for local final assembly of non-core technology as the project scales up, the company said.

Read more about it in our interview with Mr Øivind Magnussen, the Chief Executive Officer of Seabased.


Scottish wind-wave hybrid scheme moves forward

DP Energy and Floating Power Plant (FPP), the developers behind the Katanes wind-wave energy scheme in Scotland, have decided to move ahead to the next stage of the project development.

The companies have undertaken a detailed analysis of the Katanes project located off Caithness and Sutherland in the north of Scotland and completed the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) screening before deciding to proceed to the next phase.

The fist demonstrator for the Katanes project will be composed of up to 3.6MW wave and 7-8 MW wind power, followed by a further stage with an array of up to approximately 47MW, according to Anders Køhler, CEO of FPP.

redT to provide storage for large-scale tidal energy project

UK-based energy storage solutions company redT energy has been selected by a consortium of European companies to be the primary energy storage technology provider for a large-scale tidal generation project in the UK.

The project, for which a 0.6MW, 3MWh redT flow machine system has been selected, remains subject to finance and formal contract awards, the company informed.

Aside from redT energy, other members of the project consortium looking to combine tidal power with battery storage to provide consistent base load power to the grid are Atlantis Resources, EMEC, Innosea, Energy Systems Catapult and Province Zeeland. Read more.


AW-Energy makes substation construction headway in Portugal

Finnish wave energy developer AW-Energy has completed the first step in building a new substation for its SURGE2 wave energy project in Peniche, Portugal.

Namely, the groundwork for a new concrete foundation for a 350kW WaveRoller substation has been finished, AW-Energy said.

The onshore substation will connect the WaveRoller device to the grid using transformers, frequency converters and other electrical components.
