CorPower S3 delivers first power to the grid


Following successful system commissioning, the dry test program of the latest generation resonant Wave Energy Converter (WEC) – CorPower S3 – has started. The first power was delivered to the Swedish grid in April 2017, with the WEC operating in simulated waves using a 500kW Hardware-In-the-Loop (HIL) test rig in CorPower’s integration facility in Stockholm.

The rigorous dry test program has been designed to accelerate the product development and de-risk the upcoming ocean demonstration. The HIL-rig is used to supply the device with mechanical loading representing the full range of sea states, allowing debugging and stabilizing the system in simulated waves, including storm conditions.
