Development v. Kim Nielsen was started in 2008 as a part-time single man enterprise, to solve
smaller tasks around wave power development and developing ideas for harnessing wave
energy, based on personal experience from more than 40 years of work on wave power in
collaboration with companies, developers, associations, universities, etc. supported by various
The goal is to reach development and testing of the most promising idea for converting wave
power. The development has focused on the concept named KNSwing a ship shaped attenuator
