On Monday 1st July the Directors of Bombora Wave Power welcomed Sue Price, Head of Programme Management Division, Welsh European Funding Office (WEFO) to Bombora’s Pembroke Dock offices to review the latest progress on the 1.5MW mWave™ trial being conducted at Pembroke Dock.
A team of four students from Cranfield University, calling themselves the Wave Whisperers, defeated eight other teams to win the prestigious ‘Bombora Wave Power Challenge’ cup, sponsored by Welsh Government. The inaugural ‘Bombora Wave Power Challenge’ gathered forty dynamic students from across the UK to battle it out in an intensive technical engineering and water sporting event. The students were thrown into marine energy challenges, relating to Bombora’s innovative mWave technology, to test their problem solving and innovation skills.
Wave energy specialist Bombora Wave Power today announced it has been selected by Enzen to supply a grid connected wave farm to be located in the Atlantic Ocean on the north side of Lanzarote, the fourth largest of the Spanish Canary Islands, off the coast of northern Africa. The first phase of the project will see up to 4 megawatts (MW) of generating capacity through the deployment of an array of 1.5MW mWaves TM. The power generated by the submerged wave farm will supplement the island’s existing electricity supply which is currently produced largely by a diesel-fuelled power station.
