Video: C3 WEC – a machine doing what it’s supposed to do

“We can now confidently say that the machine is doing what it is supposed to do,” Patrik Möller, CEO at CorPower Ocean, is heard as saying at the beginning of the video (see below). The company completed the demonstration of its of C3 wave energy converter earlier in October. 

The wave energy converter underwent 18 months of combined dry and ocean testing to prove its mettle, especially in two areas that are major challenges for wave energy – storm survivability and significant power production.

CorPower’s storm protection mode was proven effective in minimizing motion and loads, providing robust operation in storm conditions, while the new phase control technology called WaveSpring enabled a threefold increase in average power capture for a given buoy size, CorPower Ocean stated after completing the demonstration.

The measured power production with C3 in the ocean was consistent with the expectations from simulation models and prior dry testing with simulated waves. As part of the project, the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) issued a “Performance Statement” verifying measured performance.

Offshore Energy Exhibition and Conference (OEEC) 2019

Offshore Energy Exhibition and Conference (OEEC) is where the energy transition takes place. It is Europe’s leading gathering of the entire offshore energy industry and your opportunity to network with highly qualified experts and professionals across global markets.

For more than 12 years OEEC is unique in bringing together the offshore energy industry sectors oil & gas, offshore wind and marine energy. More than 550 exhibitors from around the world present their newest services, projects and innovative products. On top of this OEEC presents international trade missions, pavilions, exclusive network lounges of the OEEC member club, the Startup Zone, matchmaking areas, the Stage and networking drinks. Approximately 12,000 professionals will visit the exhibition, take part in strategic discussions, immersive technical conference sessions focusing on the future and technical developments in the industry. Three days of networking and together shaping the future of energy.

So the question is not if but how you will be participating at Offshore Energy 2019.
