Why Hanstholm?

Hanstholm is a perfect place for a wave energy centre


  • Good wave conditions - the best in Denmark near a port
  • Good water depths close to land
  • The right pioneering attitude - on many levels
  • The existing 24/7 emergency technical marine assistance can be expanded
  • The area has an established history as a test site
  • Reasonably close to Aalborg University
  • Possible integration of wave energy plant in the new piers
  • The industry, trade organisation and leading researchers identify Hanstholm as the right place for Danish wave energy testing and demostration
