Managing Director, Ocean Harvesting Technologies AB, Sweden

Mikael Sidenmark

Inventor of the InfinityWEC wave energy converter, with a highly efficient power take-off which tunes to every individual wave to efficiently extract energy in all sea states. An innovative end-stop function ensures survival and reliable power production even in the harshest wave conditions. The buoy is made with high strength concrete, with similar weight as a conventional steel hull, but at a quarter of the cost, a third of the CO2 footprint and one tenth of the manufacturing time.

Mikael is the founder and CEO of Ocean Harvesting – one of the most promising wave power companies with a mission to unlock the vast wave energy resource. Mikael has 15 years’ experience in wave power technology development, entrepreneurship, project management, innovation and IP management. Author / co-author of 23 approved / pending patent applications.
