Novige is presented once more in the Startup4climate challenge

We are pleased to be a contestant in the Startup4climate competition, Sweden’s largest innovation challenge within the energy sector, organized by GodEl and Ellevio. The purpose of this challenge is to promote and support clean energy solutions and innovations that have the highest potential in accelerating the global energy transition. All innovations and startups in the competition are presented on We Don’t Have Time, a social network dedicated to increasing awareness about the climate crisis and its negative consequences. Winners

Novige is selected as a ‘’Top 25 Company of the 11th Nordic Cleantech Open’’

Just a few days after being announced for the list of “The Nordic Top 50 Impact Companies”, we were once again selected as one of the ‘’Top 25 Companies of the 11th Nordic Cleantech Open’’.   As one of the “Top 25 Most Innovative Start-Ups”, we are looking forward for the opportunity to show impact and cleantech investors why NoviOcean is “the right solution at the right time in history” during the Nordic Camp event

Novige is selected as a ‘’Nordic Top 50 Impact Company – 2022’’

We are glad to be selected as one of the Nordic Top 50 Impact Companies by the One Initiative. The list comprises of the top 50 promising Nordic and Baltic impact start-ups of 2022. The team has been invited to Nordic Impact Business Summit 12-13 September 2022 at Nordea HQ in central Copenhagen to talk about our solution for “saving the climate with profitable wave power” with several Nordic and global investors and venture capital organizations. We

NoviOcean NO2 Prototype in Action | Site Visit Highlights | May 2022

We are excited to present to you shortly about NoviOcean and how we intend to improve the marine energy landscape through our unique yet profoundly simple solution. The video was recorded during our public site visit (20th and 24th May 2022) in Stockholm in which we presented the NoviOcean NO2 prototype and our latest achievements. Various representatives from the EU Commission, industry actors, academia, newspapers, technical magazines, political parties, NGOs, and young researchers kindly joined

Novige AB receives a multi-million EUR grant to build its first full-scale 500 kW pilot Wave Energy Converter (WEC)

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

The Game Changers | Interview with Novige and HelioRec during OEEC 2021, Amsterdam

Yesterday, Novige‘s founder and CEO, Jan Skjoldhammer, along with HelioRec‘s founder and CEO, Polina Vasilenko, had the opportunity to be interviewed and talk about our innovative clean energy solutions at the Ocean Energy Exhibition and Conference 2021, held in RAI Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Both companies are supported by the Marine Energy Alliance project. By following this link to the interview, we get to hear more about these solutions and why they are to be important

Novige and the development of NoviOcean WEC

Here is a showcase by our team on the development of their NoviOcean WEC. The Novige team has so far successfully demonstrated a scaled prototype of their innovative wave energy converter (WEC) technology both offshore and in wave tanks, showing how we are preparing to reach our goal of “Saving the climate with profitable wave power”.

The team has so far been recognized for numerous awards and recognitions such as the Mission Innovation Champion 2020, Guldstänk’s Innovator of the year, EU’s Seal of Excellence, Stena Line’s Propeller Prize 2021, and has been recently nominated for the Startup4Climate award!

To expand globally, the Novige team is looking to partner with industrial companies with a global network. Interested in knowing more? Consider subscribing and visiting our website:

Novige is nominated for yet another startup challenge award

For the third time in a row, Novige is nominated for another award… This time it is Startup4climate, Sweden’s largest innovation challenge within the energy sector, organized by GodEl and Ellevio. The purpose of the challenge is to promote and support clean energy solutions and innovations that have the highest potential in accelerating the global energy transition. All innovations and startups in the competition are presented on We Don’t Have Time, a social network dedicated

Testing Novige’s NoviOcean NO2 Prototype at ECN’s LHEEA

We are happy to announce that the extensive tests at the Research Laboratory in Hydrodynamics, Energetics and Atmospheric Environment (LHEEA) in École Centrale de Nantes (ECN), France, have now been successfully concluded. The results show a very promising future for the NoviOcean wave energy converter (WEC) technology, proving our mathematical calculations and third-party wave2wire models.

According to the results, it has now been shown that the full-scale NoviOcean unit (rated at 500 kW) will reach its full output in 3.5-meter waves and higher, showing the immense potential ahead. Also, our new float design proved to be an improvement over the previously simplified version by which balanced front and back mooring loads could be achieved. It is worth noting that the ratio of lifting vs. horizontal loads is 20 to 1, which is unheard of in the wave energy industry. In the video, the unit is lifting 800 kg in every wave, which translates to approximately 600 tons in the full-scale unit.

This was the second time that we were granted access to perform such extensive tests in a highly equipped wave testing facility under the MaRINET2 programme, which we are very appreciative of (the first time was in 2020 in COAST Lab. Ocean Basin, Plymouth). We would also like to thank the highly professional and cooperative staff of ECN’s LHEEA during the time of our testing at their facilities.

The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Union Horizon 2020 Framework Programme (H2020) under grant agreement no 731084.
