Eco Wave Power, CIMC OEI ink MOU for power tech dev’t in China

The MOU is effective for two years but it can be extended by the parties. 

Eco Wave Power and CIMC Offshore Engineering Institute Co., Ltd. (CIMC OEI) signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) for the development of Eco Wave’s power technology in China.

Eco Wave is involved In the development of onshore wave energy technology turning ocean and sea waves into green electricity.

Under the MOU, the parties will collaborate for the promotion of the pilot plant in China using Eco Wave’s technology, Eco Wave said, adding that they will also explore possibilities for offshore implementation of its power technology.

CIMC OEI, meanwhile, will introduce Eco Wave Power to potential clients and support negotiations with its current clients and ports within China. It will also provide engineering services to selected projects.

The MOU is effective for two years and may be extended by the parties, it said.

Inna Braverman, founder and CEO of Eco Wave Power, noted that Yantai CIMC Raffles Offshore Limited has carried out more than 100 offshore and marine equipment, including 11 deep-water semi-submersible drilling rigs, “which accounts for 80% of units delivered by China and 25% of the market share around the world.”

“With this kind of market spread capabilities, coupled with CIMC’s approach for innovation, we believe that the collaboration with CIMC Raffles may significantly reinforce Eco Wave Power’s penetration strategy to innovative markets, with high levels of energy demand, while also reinforcing CIMC’s portfolio of innovative solutions,” she said.

The two will collaborate to assess the role of green hydrogen in India’s energy transition.
This was met by renewables as well as coal, and gas generation.
It forms part of a 470MW battery project.          
About 120GW of new solar and wind capacity is expected in 2022.  
The agreement includes exploration of offshore wind projects.
The growth rate stabilises following an 8% increase in 2021.
This is a 10-fold increase from the Philippines grid-connected solar capacity.
32 nuclear reactors under construction are expected to bring 30GW in electricity per year.
Without banking power, the business model of solar power becomes unviable.
It is ideal for India because of its geographical location and the socio-economic opportunities it will offer, IEEFA Contributor Charles Worringham argues.
It will look into the development of a 1.2GW solar capacity in Indonesia.
The joint venture will operate under the brand Solar Radiance.
This is to support the increasing demand, according to Wood Mackenzie.
The joint venture is expected to start operations in the first half of 2022.
The product will allow coverage of consequential loss due to damages on property during PV installation.
