Final Report - WAVESSG (Full-scale demonstration of robust and high-efficiency wave energy converter)

Project ID: 19831
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV

Abstract

Wave energy is a renewable energy source capable of contributing significantly in the global energy production. Today, the biggest challenge in this field is obtaining reliability of the technology at a reduced cost. The EU-funded project WAVESSG aimed to build, test and monitor an SSG wave energy converter at full-scale, including implementation of innovative patented technology.

This final report of the WAVESSG project provides a brief overview of the quantified objectives, the employed equipment and the applied novelties. It closes with a description of the up-to-date results and the reasons for which the project was not fully complete.
