SPOTLIGHT ON SWEDEN


FEATURE SPONSOR


SWEDEN’S OCEAN ENERGY INDUSTRY POWERS FORWARD


Driven by the success of its wave and tidal energy technology developers, Sweden has emerged as a key player in Europe’s ocean energy sector


A strong culture of national and international collaboration has underpinned this success, and the industry is now entering an exciting new phase – pre-commercial development. Since 2015, Ocean Energy Sweden has helped this culture thrive, and provided support to the sector as it develops.


A STRONG HISTORY OF TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT In 2017, Forbes ranked Sweden as the best country in the world for business. However, its relatively small domestic economy has meant that Swedish manufacturers like Volvo, Scania and Ericsson have to look beyond their own borders, build partnerships and find bigger markets. Today Sweden’s ocean energy industry sees a similar challenge on the horizon as it moves towards commercialisation.


A NEW GENERATION


Over the past decade, a new generation of Swedish SMEs have propelled themselves to the front ranks of ocean energy technology development globally. To get there, they have worked together domestically and built business partnerships internationally.

Today the Swedish ocean energy sector is entering an exciting new phase in its lifecycle, pre-commercial development and this push is opening up business opportunities all along the supply chain.


2017 – DEMONSTRATING TECHNOLOGY WITH INDUSTRIAL SUPPLY CHAIN SUPPORT 2017 will be notable for the number of cutting edge Swedish prototypes hitting the water around Europe. After years of rigorous testing, the sector is ramping up testing activities. By the end of this year, several innovative Swedish technologies will be undergoing demonstration programmes in the waters around Europe, many at full scale.


Importantly, more and more industrialists, from all along the value chain, are investing and collaborating in these deployments. This is a clear indication of the increasing maturity of these technologies.


CORPOWER


Swedish wave energy developer CorPower announced the successful delivery of power to the Swedish electricity grid from its S3 wave energy


convertor in June this year. Following this extensive dry-testing programme, the S3 will be transported to the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) later this year.


Patrik Moller, CEO, outlines the importance of collaboration for CorPower: “Our success is extremely tied to working with the right partners. We’ve gathered the best experience and talent from international partners like Iberdrola and EMEC, and the Swedish industry like Swepart and PMC Cylinders, into the same programme. That’s crucial.”

WAVES4POWER Also in June this year, Waves4Power announced their WaveEL wave energy system, comprised of the WaveEL buoy, a connection hub and a 3km long power export cable, had started delivering power to the Norwegian electricity grid. The full scale demonstration will be an important step towards commercial serial production.
