The Wave Hub Project - Large Scale Offshore Wave Energy

[UK] Government go-ahead for Wave Hub project

The UK Government will today give planning approval for the world's first large scale wave farm off the coast of Cornwall in South West England. [...]

Wave Hub is a world first and will include an onshore substation connected to electrical equipment on the seabed about 16 kilometres (10 miles) offshore via a sub-sea cable.

Companies developing wave energy technology will be able to plug into Wave Hub to test their wave energy devices on a scale never seen anywhere before. Four companies have already been chosen to use Wave Hub.

Wave Hub will put South West England and the UK at the forefront of emerging wave energy technology by providing a leased and consented area of sea for the pre-commercial testing of wave energy devices.
