WaveRoller® – the world-leading nearshore wave energy technology

WaveRoller® is the cutting-edge technology for generating electricity from ocean waves. Operated in the nearshore area, WaveRoller® stands out from other wave energy solutions.

The nearshore energy resources are comparable to those in offshore area, yet the risk of damage to the device due to heavy storms is considerably smaller. Mooring and cabling are less expensive and transmission losses are lower. The submerged WaveRoller® -device has a minimal visual impact, which makes it attractive for areas with natural values or tourism.
