A number of players in north Jutland have launched a plan to establish a wave energy centre in Hanstholm, a fishing town located on the west coast of Jutland facing the North Sea. The wave energy industry, Aalborg University, Thisted Municipality and the Port of Hanstholm have started the preliminary work of setting up a centre where companies can test their wave energy plants, reports professional journal Ingeniøren (The Engineer).
 
Senior lecturer at Aalborg University Jens Peter Kofoed says in a press release: "It will be an industry-oriented wave energy centre, which will support development that is already in progress in wave energy. We aim to create a test-supporting infrastructure including facilities which developers can rent."
 
Kofoed points to Hanstholm being an obvious place to locate a wave energy centre because of its well-functioning port and the depth of the waters.
 
The players involved will commission consultancy company Innovayt to help raise financial support for the project. If the financing is successful, the centre will be built during 2010 and have a budget of DKK 50m (USD 9.4m) over five years.
