WEDUSEA will demonstrate a grid connected 1MW OE35 floating wave energy converter at the European Marine Energy Centre in Orkney, Scotland. This rigorous technical and environmental demonstration will happen over a 2 year period in Atlantic wave conditions with outcomes directly impacting policy, technical standards, public perception and investor confidence


The WHEEL project’s objective is to fully demonstrate and bring to a precommercial Technology Readiness Level (TRL) a revolutionary floating wind technology suited for deep waters locations, effective industrialization strategies, breakthrough cost reduction and minimized carbon footprint.


The overall project objective is to optimize the entire charging chain, from energy provision to the end user, to create a clear benefit for all stakeholders. Therefore, a ubiquitous on-demand charging solution based on annoptimized charging network considering human, technical and economic factors along the entire charging chain shall be developed
