West Swedish marine energy technology is at the forefront of renewable energy development and is now being exported to Norway. In the short future, a large western Swedish wave power system will be launched. If you are interested in marine energy technology, here’s your chance to at Eriksberg quayside see a giant buoy at Eriksberg quayside before it is shipped to produce fossil-free electricity for the Norwegian power grid.

While taking advantage of the latest in marine energy technology, you have the opportunity to meet representatives from the business network, the West Swedish Subsea, and OffshoreVäst. There are many exciting initiatives in the Gothenburg region in this field, offering both new and established companies.

We welcome you to meet with industry contacts, hear what’s going on, and see the buoy on the quayside!
