Havkraft’s floating prototype running continuously for over 2000 hours producing electricity in the harsh and open sea environment at Stad in Sogn og Fjordane, Norway, without any stops, through storms and high waters. Few – if any – have tested a wave power protoype in such tough environments with so many operational hours. The prototype will still be running on site to gain more experience with this game changing technology.

MARINTEK Sintef verifies Havkraft’s unique technology and its efficiency through advanced simulations. The key is to be so efficient, yet so flexible, that the wave energy converters can be fitted for survival to any rough sea conditions. Full scale deployment of a 200 kW H-WEC power plant scheduled in the summer of 2014.
February 12 2014
MARINTEK conducting simulations on the world leading H-WEC, making it possible to construct a variety of the many applications with the H-WEC such as power plants, aqaculture facilities, hybrids with hydrogen/wind/thermal, desalination plants, electrification on bridges/platforms/subsea and floating piers.

Havkraft’s multi patented full scale power plant will prove a very efficient and simple machine with no movable parts in contact with sea that will work for several decades with a minimum of maintenance.
October 21 2013
Havkraft have started up the production of a full scale model of the Havkraft Wave Energy Converter (H-WEC). The converter will be produced at Stadyard close to the great maritime city of Måløy, Norway.
August 21 2013
Efficiency exceeding 35 % makes Havkraft Wave Energy Converter (H-WEC) one of the worlds most efficient OWC-device.
August 9 2013
Havkraft’s third patent WARE granted in the great nation of South Africa.
July 3 2013
Building cities on sea is a future possibility, now that we have the technology to «eliminate the sea waves as a factor». In other words – we can now control the complete energy field with all it’s frequencies in one passive system, making it easier and cheaper to build offshore installations.
March 7 2013
Havkraft introducing the Stadmaster as a complete ocean energy concept. Soon to be tested 1:1 in real sea conditions close to the notorious Stadhavet on the North West coast of Norway.
October 21 2012
Both Havkraft’s CEO and the company’s chairman speak about ocean energy as one of the world’s most attractive, long term investment cases available at Investor Day in Førde on October 22nd 2012.
August 5 2012
Havkraft invites national and international co-investors interested in effective clean tech solutions to contact CEO for prospect and meeting.
June 9 2012
Tomorrows wave energy converters will be 4 times more efficient than todays solutions. Higher efficiency combined with an extended production time will secure enough power production to finance the necessary platforms needed to survive in the most hostile ocean environments on earth. One of the main success criteria is no movable parts in contact with sea for better longevity and lower OPEX/CAPEX. H-WEC give answers to these challenges.
May 18th 2012
Havkraft planning a wave power installation on the North West coast of Norway. Approved testsites available.
April 12th 2012
New patents developed to optimise energy capture in the H-WEC-installation.
October 24th 2011
The patented H-WEC-technology has the potential to become one of the most effective technologies in the industry. The great efficiency will make it possible to reduce OPEX and CAPEX to a minimum, making it possible to establish wave power as one of the world’s new, great energy sources. We are now in the process of starting up a large scale test project. Co-investors will be invited to join the company.
