Final Report - WAVE DRAGON MW (Development and validation of technical and economic feasibility of a multi MW Wave Dragon offshore wave energy converter)

Project ID: 19983
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV

Abstract

The WAVEDRAGON MW project, funded under the European Community's Sixth Framework Programme, aimed to develop an offshore wave energy converter device and set it in full scale operation, in order to acquire useful experience towards an innovative and commercially viable solution for electricity generation using renewable sources.

This final report of the WAVEDRAGON MW project presents the existing experience in the converter field, acquired by the thorough testing of a scale prototype, along with the progress achieved during the project. It analyses the technical parameters that were taken into account and the environmental, social and economic impacts of the project. It also describes how the postponing of the converter construction influenced the WAVEDRAGON MW outcomes.
