The device was redeployed May 5, 2017, after it underwent overhauling at Ulstein Shipyard. Since then it has also been installed succesfully and is to be connected to the Norwegian grid to start producing electricity .

The company’s Chief Executive also unveiled it is well underway with the development of its next generation wave power system.

Lindelöf said: “This will be a system built in composite and it will, in one step, halve our cost for building and deploying wave power systems.”
