WaveRoller® Partners with Wärtsilä in Commercial Roll-Out on EPC Basis
12 September 2017
The technology group Wärtsilä and Finnish-based AW-Energy announced today that they have signed a global co-operation agreement covering sales and delivery of WaveRoller®, a wave energy technology developed by AW-Energy, on a turn-key basis across the life-cycle.
The co-operation is based on AW-Energy’s patented and certified technology and Wärtsilä Energy Solutions’ global project execution, services and integration capabilities. Ocean energy is the largest untapped renewable energy source with a potential for hundreds of GWs generation capacity. In addition to the vast resource potential, ocean waves and sea states can be accurately predicted up to days in advance, making it the long awaited addition in the next generation energy mix. Thus, the emerging wave power technology has all the pre-requisites to take an equally sizable and important role with solar and wind in the future.
