After weeks of preparation, and with assistance from Olympic shipping, the WaveEL connection hub was successfully launched by Waves4Power at the Runde wave demonstration site on Thursday.

Waves4Power’s president Ulf Lindelöf said “even though the weather was not ideal we managed to install the connection hub on site without incidents and the new power cable from the hub to shore was installed”.

It will be another few days before the WaveEL buoy is connected via the hub to the shore based power grid, but Lindelöf says with confidence “we will see power in the cable very soon”!
