The Mutriku Wave Power Plant was the first commercial installation in Europe to use wave energy to generate electricity. It is located inside the breakwater that protects Biscay Port. The power plant uses unique technology to obtain energy, the “Oscillating Water Column” (OWC), which, to date, has achieved a significant cumulated production, exceeding 2.4 GWh.

The Basque Energy Board (Ente Vasco de la Energía) is launching a preliminary consultation to evaluate the market interest in the Public Procurement of Innovation for the development of air turbines to be applied in the Mutriku wave power plant. In order to present the TurboWave challenge to its potential stakeholders, next Thursday, 3 February, an Informative Webinar (in English) will be held from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. with the following program:

10:00 Opening.

About TurboWave Public Procurement of innovation and its preliminary market consultation

The objective is to acquire technologically innovative solutions for air turbines that can be used in the Mutriku Wave Power Plant and other general needs of the Wave Energy sector.

The challenge involves the design, development and demonstration of a cost-effective, reliable and safe air turbine system for producing electricity. The proposed technologies will be evaluated in terms of efficiency-performance, controllability, reliability, maintainability and affordability. Finally, two to eight generators are expected to be purchased.
