Norwegian company Intentium AS has been developing offshore floating wave power since 2007. The company has completed several external studies of its patented offshore wave energy plant. Intentium Offshore Wave Energy Converter utilizes a wider stabilized float, resulting in a wider wavefront being captured and hence more energy being harvested. The concept also consists of robust solutions for the PTO with hydro-power similarities disconnected from the moorings. In 2012 the concept went through extensive ocean basin testing at Aalborg University, through the EU funded initiative MARINET. Results, backed up by previous numerical simulations conducted by SINTEF MARINTEK, shows a persistent efficiency through a diversity of wave conditions. The company has its own internal wave tank at its location in Sjøparken Larvik, Vestfold. Intentium was founded by MSc. Lars Edvardsen, who previously worked at Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace, Space-division and Jotron AS. Intentium also runs the open wave energy project.
The company has been working with various projects within mechanical engineering, product design and construction of geothermal heating plants. There is however one thing we are strict about; We have taken a climate stand, and say no-thanks to oil&gas or any other fossil energy projects. And yes – ditching oil&gas makes running a mechanical engineering business in Norway a lot harder.
