To get there, Waves4Power pulled together “a unique network of industrial partner companies. Each partner company is an industry leader in their respective field of business and they take full responsibility for their solutions in the complete wave energy system.

Conference & Exhibition to provide support to Swedish companies and to companies expanding their ocean energy business in Sweden. It is a virtual shop-front where international companies can explore business opportunities with Swedish companies.

Our success is extremely tied to working with the right partners.

This collaborative approach to the work adds immeasurable credibility to Waves4Power and speeds up the development process.” Waves4Power stated.

MINESTO To round off this trio of deployments, later this year Minesto will deploy its ‘Deep Green’ tidal kite technology off Anglesey in the UK. This will be the first demonstration of a full scale tidal kite anywhere in the world. Minesto plans to follow this up with a 10MW farm at the same site in the coming years.

A technology spin-off from automotive manufacturer Saab, ‘Deep Green’ operates at current speeds of around 1.4 – 2.5 metres per second, which are normally too slow for other tidal technologies. In doing so, Minesto can bring into play a whole new range of deployment sites.

OCEAN ENERGY SWEDEN – THE COLLABORATION NETWORK Ocean Energy Sweden was launched at the Ocean Energy Europe 2015

It wants to scale up such partnerships and make it easier for companies outside Sweden to find out what’s happening and how to get involved.

“Sweden is a small country. We need to reach out to international partners, and we need channels to reach out through,” commented Mikael Sidenmark, Managing Director of Ocean Harvesting and member of Ocean Energy Sweden. “Ocean Energy Sweden gives us that channel.”

The organisation also acts as a catalyst for collaboration between technology developers domestically. It gives a space for Swedish developers to find projects and commercial activities to collaborate around and push for innovation actions and funding around critical areas.

For example, an innovation action has been created with NKT Cables, CorPower, Waves4Power, Minesto and research partners RISE (Research Institutes of Sweden) and the University of Chalmers to develop a new-gen

cable capable of handling the unique requirements of harsh ocean energy environments. Following design and modelling, the cable will be trailed at Waves4Power’s and CorPower’s demonstration sites in Runde, Norway and EMEC, Scotland. The goal is to develop cables that will last for 25 years of service free operation.


One of Ocean Energy Sweden’s greatest successes to date has been to give the Swedish sector a common voice on the EU stage. By speaking together, the needs of the Swedish ocean energy sector have been clearer, stronger and have had a greater impact. Ocean Energy Sweden, represented by RISE, sits on the influential ETIPOcean (European Technology & Innovation Platform for Ocean Energy) Steering Committee, and it has provided input to the Ocean Energy Roadmap, developed under the patronage of the European Commission.

“As a cluster, the knowledge and expertise we have built up over the last decade has been hard-won. Working through Ocean Energy Sweden, we want to bring that knowledge to the table and work with our European colleagues to build an ocean energy sector,” concluded CorPower CEO, Patrik Moller.
