Lusa - Business News - Portugal: Wave energy production centre in Viana do Castelo in debate




Viana do Castelo,July 31,2020(Lusa)-The administration of the port of Viana do Castelo has initiated a public discussion on the private use of the infrastructure for the installation of a wave energy production center, according to the public notice published Friday in the official state gazette Diário da República.
At stake is an investment of €16 million from the technology company CorPower Ocean in the creation of a Research and Development Center (R&D) in the seaport, to develop wave energy converters.
According to the public notice published in Diário da República, and consulted today by the Lusa agency, the Administration of Douro, Leixões and Viana do Castelo Ports (APDL) started the period of public consultation of the "attribution of the title of private use of the Public Water Domain (DPH) for the installation of a removable hangar for the production of composite parts for wave energy converters".
Those interested have 30 working days to "object" to the attribution of that title.
At the beginning of the month, in a statement sent to Lusa, APDL explained that the "production factory, assembly, maintenance and repair of wave energy converters" will be installed in the sea port, at least until the year 2024, being the expansion for definitive installations, in Viana do Castelo, planned for the end of the demonstration project to be installed in Aguçadoura beach, in Póvoa de Varzim, district of Porto".
"The technology developed by CorPower differs from the others by obtaining five times more energy per ton of device and by having a unique survival mode, which offers robustness in the most demanding maritime conditions, among other innovations that seem disruptive to the existing technology," explains the APDL in the note.
According to APDL, "the port of Viana do Castelo allows the establishment of a base of operations with unique characteristics, where all the activities related to the final stages of validation of the technology proposed by CorPower can be developed".
The project, considered "pioneer" and with the name HiWave-5, "is supported by private and public European investors, namely the Equity Funding, Swedish Energy Agency, Portugal Compete 2020, and EU Grants and is in line with the Government's plan for the development of renewable energy in the country, a sector that could generate €254 million in investments, €280 million in gross value added and create 1500 new jobs".
CorPower, a leading company in wave energy technology, justified the choice of Viana do Castelo for the installation of the R&D centre "with a solid set of engineers from sectors such as offshore wind, composite manufacturing and shipyards, high level universities and industrial infrastructure, including ports and grid connection".
According to the note sent to Lusa, "CorPower Ocean's work complements the Portuguese industrial strategy for ocean renewable energies, designed to create a competitive and innovative industrial export 'cluster' for ocean renewable energies".
"Recently, the electricity network operator REN has installed a new 'offshore' cable at the service of floating wind power and there is significant commercial interest from utilities and project promoters for the development of the next generation wave project".
The project involves Windfloat Atlantic (WFA), an offshore wind farm project in Viana do Castelo, with a budget of €125 million, coordinated by EDP, through EDP Renováveis, and including Principle Power, Repsol, Portugal Ventures and Metalúrgica A. Silva Matos.
According to EDP, the floating wind farm, the first in Europe, located 20 kilometres off Viana do Castelo, has already started generating energy and will supply around 60 thousand consumers per year, saving almost 1.1 million tonnes of CO2.
For CorPower Ocean, "wave energy can play a key role in Portugal's transition to a 100% renewable energy country, offering a platform to boost Portuguese exports and long-term investment opportunities for local supply chains".
