Project Phase Phase 1
Project Details Based on a 2003 ENI, SEV and Wavegen feasibility study of a wave power plant installation in the Faroe Islands ('Feasibility study of a Wavegen Wave Power Plant in The Faroe Islands'), SeWave has selected two sites of interest in the Faroe Islands: south of Sltuvk (Sandoy) and Npan (Vgoy). SeWave has completed bathymetric surveys, geological surveys, topographic surveys as well as accessibility assessments (grid access and road- and tunnel access) for these two sites. This work was based on the LIMPET design on Islay. The project began in October 2003. Further model tests, site investigations, and design issues were completed by the start of 2005.
