IMPACT: Next-generation testing approach for Wave Energy Converters

IMPACT is a collaborative research and innovation project which aims to develop and demonstrate a next-generation testing approach for Wave Energy Converters (WECs).

The proposed 250kW Dual Hardware-In-the-Loop (DHIL) testing platform is based on a technology which expands the capabilities of the already established Hardware-In-the-Loop technique.



IMPACT features five project partners from four European countries. The project is coordinated by VGA, Srl (Italy), with the following project partners: Yavin Four Consultants (Portugal), SINTEF Energy Research (Norway), SINTEF Ocean (Norway) and University College Cork (Ireland).
