CorPower Ocean

CorPower Ocean

CorPower Ocean AB was founded in 2009 and has developed a compact high-efficiency wave energy converter, inspired by the pumping principles of the human heart. Our aim is to establish a new class of highly effective wave power for utility-scale energy ge

The Wave Energy Converters (WECs) have a unique design with low inertia, combined with advanced control systems that make the WEC oscillate in resonance with incoming waves. Our patented phase control technology makes the converters resonant in all wave conditions, strongly amplifying the motion and power capture.

This allows for small and light devices with a high power output, and effective energy absorption over a broad range of sea states. The concept, incorporating many small units, enables mass production to drive down device cost, and has an effective maintenance scheme. The system has an excellect survivability rate in storms, thanks to its robust construction.
