Development v Kim Nielsen

Stand 1.329 - Dutch Marine Energy Centre

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 development funds. 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 attenua tor including OWC chambers on each side. The KNSwing has been tested under the EU Marinet program, at HMRC UCC, and Portaferry under Queens University Belfast. Experimental and numerical models have been developed in cooperation with students under Harry Bingham at DTU, MEC
