    Marine energy, a renewable future

                                           The future of energy unquestionably lies in renewables. And it is a future that will not be dominated by
                                           any one source of energy, but will involve making the best use of the resources each country or region
                                           has to offer. Wind, solar, marine, hydroelectric, geothermal, biomass and biofuel energy together form
                                           an extensive toolbox from which we can choose the best instruments for fighting our dependency on
                                           fossil fuels.

                                           All of these energy types are currently involved in a process of technological development that seeks
                                           to cut generating costs to levels values similar to current central thermoelectric rates. Alongside hydro
                                           power, wind energy is currently the most widely harnessed renewable energy type in the world, but
                                           other sources are beginning to play an increasingly important role, such as biomass, solar
                                           thermoelectric and solar photovoltaic.

                                           Among all of these options, marine energy still has a bit further to go before it can be used on a large
                                           scale. The challenge is important. The sea is a hostile environment for equipment and infrastructures,
                                           and this increases the technological effort required to extract its energy efficiently. Indeed, the first
                                           attempts to develop marine energy data back more or less the same time as other renewables. Yet at
                                           the same time, it is a challenge with exciting perspectives. Marine energy is one of the renewable
                                           sources with the highest energy density and with the greatest generating capacity, among other
                                           reasons, because more than 70% of the planet's surface is covered in water. Moreover, the converters
                                           can be located offshore, and involve little interaction with the marine ecosystem, which means that
                                           potentially, this has the potential to be one of the renewable sources with least environmental impact.

      The sea's energy can be harvested in a number of ways. The five principal systems currently being explored are wave energy, tide energy,
      currents, the difference in salt gradient with the fresh water of a river and the difference in temperature between the sea surface and major
      depths. The fact is that the industry still stands at a stage of technological divergence. According to figures from the International Energy
      Agency, there are over 80 concept types of marine energy converter under development, with only a few of them at a pre-commercial
      phase. Nonetheless, it is clear that in recent years the pace of progress has accelerated and it would not be fanciful to imagine that less
      than a decade from now, output from marine energy farms could be running into gigawatts. The wait will have been worthwhile.

The Basque Country's commitment to wave energy

 The Basque Country has 150 kilometres of coastline and a vast capacity to generate energy from the waves, the only marine resource that
 can be harvested, given local conditions. This potential was recognised at the beginning of this decade by both the Basque Government
 and by the regional network of technology centres, not to mention companies from the private sector that for many years had been working
 to make marine energy a reality in the Basque Country. Their efforts have helped make the Basque Country one of the world's key regions
 for marine energy and home to 3 iconic projects:

  "BIMEP“: Biscay Marine Energy Platform

                                           The BIMEP is an infrastructure for research, demonstration and operation of offshore wave-capturing systems.
                                           It has open installations allowing manufacturers to install their own equipment for demonstration and testing
                                           Among its key characteristics, it has a total capacity of 20 MW, several connection points for converters, and an
                                           associated research centre with an estimated staff of 30 researchers in 4 years. It is due to come into operation
                                           at the end of 2011.

  "Mutriku": Wave energy facility

                                           Another energy project in Mutriku involves installation and commissioning an innovative new plant to generate
                                           electricity by harnessing the energy of waves reaching the shore. The plant has been developed by EVE and
                                           the Basque Government's Department of Transport and Public Works.
                                           It consists of 16 turbines using oscillating water column (OWC) technology, with a combined capacity of 480
                                           kW. It will be the world's first commercial grid-connected OWC. All the electricity produced will be exported to
                                           the grid.

  “Oceantec”: Development of a wave energy converter

                                           OCEANTEC is a technologically-based company, part owned by Iberdrola and Tecnalia Corporación
                                           Tecnológica, whose purpose is to develop a high-efficiency, competitively priced device for capturing wave
                                           This is the first wave energy converter developed using Spanish technology to be tested on the open sea (in
                                           Pasajes, off the coast of Gipuzkoa). The initiative, which has a budget of €4.5 million, hopes to develop a full-
                                           scale prototype during 2011 and a pilot plant in 2012.

An industry with historical links to the sea and to energy

  The joint commitment by all Basque public and private agents to marine energy should come as no
  surprise. The Basque Country has a long and closely-knit relation with the sea and its energy, and it
  was only a question of time before the two areas found their intersection.

  Indeed, the very origins of the city of Bilbao are inseparably linked to the sea, with the town being
  founded at the same time as its sea port. Since the Middle Ages, the Basque coast has boasted a
  strong shipbuilding industry, which originally grew up on the back of major trade in wool, weapons and
  iron with Flanders. The tradition has continued to this day, with large shipyards and other auxiliary
  industries of importance for marine energy such as ship engineering, ship's engines, mooring and
  anchoring and protection against corrosion and biofouling, among others.
  In the field of energy, the Basque Country is home to some of the world's top names. They include the world's largest developer and
  operator of wind farms, one of the top manufacturers of wind turbines, a key enterprise in the technological development of solar
  thermoelectric energy and a group of electrical equipment manufacturers who together amass a similar size to the leading multinationals in
  the power transport and distribution industry. The Basque energy industry gives employment to nearly 70,000 people and has total turnover
  of €45 billion.

  Given the strength of these two industries, the business opportunities and outlook of marine energy have not gone unnoticed in the
  business sector. Many Basque companies are currently participating or collaborating in one or more of the headline projects we have
  already mentioned. Basque business also dominates large-scale R&D projects being carried out in Spain. All the companies participating in
  the Singular Strategic Marine Energy Project, begun in 2005, financed by the Spanish government and led by Tecnalia, were from the
  Basque Country (Arteche, Gamesa, Iberdrola, Ingeteam, Tamoin, Vicinay Cadenas and ZIV). More recently at the beginning of 2010 the
  CENIT-E Ocean Leader project was set up. Coordinated by Iberdrola, it is intended to be the world's largest ocean energy R&D+I project
  with a budget of €30 million. As well as Iberdrola Renovables and its subsidiary Iberdrola Ingeniería y Construcción, the project also
  includes companies such as Ibaia Energía, Ingeteam, Nem Solutions, Oceantec, Sener and Vicinay Cadenas.

  The idea of harvesting energy from the sea is not a new one in the Basque Country. There were once 33 tide mills dotted along the coast,
  of which unfortunately only one —the Arteaga mill at Portu Errota— is still in operation. Now a new opportunity has arisen to make this type
  of renewable energy one of the features of the Basque Country.

Contents of the catalogue

    This catalogue is meant to meet three objectives:
            To offer a quick overview of the state of the art and value chain of wave power.
            To show how Basque companies are currently operating in all areas of the value chain.
            To present each of the Basque organisations with capacity in the industry, classifying and describing their capacities in the area of
            wave power.

    As well as the following analysis, the document also contains a data sheet for each of the participating organisations, listed alphabetically,
    with a description of each one’s activities and contact information.

                  BOSCH REXROTH offers customers automation solutions in the fluid power industry.
                  Rexroth performs engineering and manufactures fluid power equipment for marine energy (hydraulic cylinders, accumulator battery,
                  valves and hydraulic blocks, pumps for generator drives and wave compensation systems) and is involved in numerous projects for
                  developing PTO systems, based on its own systems and components, sturdy, reliable and widely tested in marine applications.
                  Rexroth supplies manufacturers of PTO systems and collaborates on projects from the design phase with “wave-to-wire” computer
                  simulations. In an iterative design, the specialists at Rexroth optimise both the system itself and the assembly system for the
                  manufactured subsets. Rexroth combines its experience in this field with specialisation in automating systems for marine energy
                  Rexroth works in the two main areas of development of PTO systems: generators that are similar to wind turbines and hydraulic
                  In the latter case, Rexroth's hydraulic components are especially designed for use offshore and are perfectly adapted to the harsh
                  environmental conditions of marine systems, both in terms of anti-corrosion protection and resistance to large fluctuating loads in a
                  reduced watertight space.
