CorPower Ocean has secured a 10-year licence from the Portuguese authorities to establish a wave energy project in the Atlantic Ocean.

The Tupem license – awarded by the national Directorate-General for Natural Resources – provides a ‘Permit for the Private Use of the Maritime Space’ up to 10km off the coast of Aguçadoura in northern Portugal.


CorPower Ocean country manager Miguel Silva said the permit unlocks the demonstration phase of the company’s flagship HiWave-5 wave energy converter (WEC).
