Sustainable Energy – Wave Power
Wave power company Havkraft from Norway has signed a contract with Equinor to conduct a feasibility study exploring the integration of wave power as a sustainable energy source for mobile offshore drilling units (MODUs).
Wave energy is recognized as one of the world’s most promising renewable energy sources, available for coastal and offshore areas worldwide. This energy source has the potential to revolutionize the way we generate clean electricity, making it a crucial part of the transition to a low-carbon society.
Wave power is a green technology that is environmentally friendly, with minimal impact on marine life and the ecosystem both above and below the water’s surface. Havkraft’s wave energy converters are uniquely capable of producing electricity in remote offshore areas, making them a viable solution for powering MODUs, where emission reduction, environmental conservation, and sustainable development are desired.
Equinor is eager to explore the potential of wave power as a sustainable energy source for the industry. Therefore, Equinor has engaged Havkraft to conduct a study that will investigate the feasibility of integrating wave power solutions on MODUs, with the goal of significantly reducing operational CO2 emissions and promoting sustainable development within the industry.
