Bergen: the future world capital of wave powered hydrogen
by Geir Arne Solheim, CEO, founder, inventor and owner
PEOPLE DON’T BUY WHAT YOU DO …
… THEY BUY WHY YOU DO IT!
- Simon Sinek
16 YEARS INTO WAVE
POWER BECAUSE OF PASSION …
… IT’S CERTAINLY NOT ABOUT MAKING A QUICK BUCK!

A SOLID PROOF
OF CONCEPT
…
Quote: “It has been shown that depending on the efficiency of the damping by the turbine system energy up to 35 %
can be extracted from the wave on individual periods. This means that when exposed for an irregular wave spectrum
this system will be able to extract more energy than traditional OWC systems as the Havkraft system responds to a
broader spectrum of frequencies”.
- Dr Karl Christian Strømsem, Offtek

PROTOTYPE PROJECT …
… SPENDING 10 MNOK TO PROVE OUR POINT!
A FULL SCALE
SUMMARY – ADVANTAGES
- A new invention with worldwide patents
- Longer production period by responding to a broader spectrum of frequencies
- More energy extracted as a result of optimised wave reflection
- No movable parts in contact with the sea
- All electrical installations above sea level
- Module-based and scalable technology for greater flexibility
- Independent of carrier for greater flexibility og cost reduction (platforms, barges, piers, bridges etc)
- Offers possibilities offshore, near shore and onshore
- Ideal for hybrid solutions (wave/wind/thermal/hydrogen)
- Ideal as a pure wave damper
-Ideal combination with desalination of drinking water
- Great market potential in EU
