Renewable Wave Power and Sustainable Steel

Seabased technology provides power from waves to grid. Our industry is young and growing; the global potential has been estimated at around 3 million MW (Mørk, 2010). For every MW we install, we use some 300 tons of steel. This means the steel we choose has a huge impact on everything from price to quality to our environmental profile. What do we require, and what do we desire, from our steel suppliers – and why?
