Fred. Olsen Ltd. has developed technology for conversion of ocean waves into electricity for more than sixteen years.

Since 2003, we have built and operated five different wave energy converters in three different countries. Accumulated over 64.000 hours of in-sea operation and 15.000 hours of energy production. These are world leading figures.

This has given us a firm understanding of the limitations and possibilities of wave generated electricity.

Building technical solutions brick by brick in collaboration with leading technology companies like Siemens and Gates Corporation, we have developed a low maintenance, high reliability power take-off technology for generation of electricity from ocean waves.

BOLT Sea Power offer buoys that provides a locally generated power supply for offshore and subsea equipment, in addition offering a reliable low latency communication line to shore for remote operation..
