Finnish wave energy developer Wello Oy is extending the testing programme of its Penguin wave energy convertor at the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) in Orkney having signed a one year extension to their original contract.
Their 1MW Penguin wave energy converter has been undergoing testing in Orkney since June 2011, and was first deployed at EMEC’s grid-connected wave test site at Billia Croo on the west coast of Orkney in 2012.
Following the three test periods that have already been completed at EMEC, Wello have confirmed all internal components are still in good working order.
The company is now focusing on demonstrating efficient and reliable device operations and performance to customers, whilst preparing for multi-device deployment in the near future.
