Encouraging results for wave energy project

The wave energy research project that is being conducted off the coast of Gozo is producing very encouraging results, sparking a lot of interest in Europe and hitting the international media, the Malta Council for Science and Technology said.

The project is funded by the council and the Technology National Research and Innovation programme and coordinated by DexaWave Energy Malta in collaboration with Euromed Eco Power, the Institute for Sustainable Energy and the International Ocean Institute Malta Operation Centre at the University.

The purpose of the project is to transfer technology to adapt a converter for Mediterranean from North Sea conditions.

This is being done by constructing a 1:10 scale model of the converters which will be subjected to real Mediterranean conditions. This 1:10 prototype developed for Mediterranean waters established the extent to which the eventual full scale project is likely to meet the needs of its beneficiaries in terms of reliable and competitive CO2 neutral wave energy offshore Malta.
