Novige AB received a 2.1 million EUR grant from the European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency (CINEA) under the LIFE programme to design, build, deploy, test, and certify its first full-scale pilot WEC unit, NoviOcean NO500 in an offshore test site by 2025/26.

NoviOcean WEC (rated at 500 kW) will utilize a low-weighted 38×7 square meter rectangular float and well-proven parts to produce clean/stable electricity at a commercially viable cost. Simple design, less use of materials, and recyclability, along with an effective global licensing strategy will facilitate local manufacturing, operation, and decommissioning using readily available resources.

More details on the upcoming stages of building and deployment of the pilot unit will be disseminated on a continued basis to various project stakeholders. For more information on the context and progress of the LIFE NOVIOCEAN project, please visit our dedicated project page.
