NextWave successfully kicked-off
February 24, 2019
On February 21nd the kick-off meeting was held at the premises of Rosemount TankRadar/ Emerson. This pre-study aims to investigate the use of affordable and efficient radar technology (as used in the automotive industry) to provide future wave information.
By combining wave radar, motion measurement of the WEC, and a machine learning algorithm, the forces acting on the WEC can be forecasted in real-time thus facilitating the use of control strategies.
The project members incorporate the entire value chain: a radar supplier (Rosemount), a radar software specialist (SafeRadar), RISE and two wave energy technology developers, Corpower and Oceanharvesting. The project is co-financed by the Swedish Energy Agency (Energimyndigheten).
