Welcome to the Homepage of the European OWC Wave Power Plant on the Island of Pico/Azores.
This webpage is the outcome of the program of repair works carried out on the OWC pilot plant, co-ordinated by WavEC Offshore Renewables in Portugal, with national funding under a Portuguese scheme for scientific pilot projects (PRIME/DEMTEC).
Once finished this project, the WavEC continued the monitoring programme with its own funding.
Significant improvement has been achieved since 2009 resulting in autonomous operation by the end of 2010.
WavEC Offshore Renewables closed the "Save the Pico Plant" campaign (May 2012-Sep 2014)
