Rolling Power From The Tide

Posted on October 24, 2012

Norwegian company Langlee Wave Power and Repnaval Shipyard (Zamakona Yards) have signed an agreement for the development of wave power in the Canary Islands. The two companies will file a common application to the EEA grants for development of renewable energy in Spain.

Langlee Wave Power AS has developed technology designed to convert ocean waves into electricity. According to the company, the Canary Islands are the best place for wave power in Europe because of its stable wave climate. With the company’s technology, electricity can be produced with lower cost by a renewable energy source, Langlee said.
