Eco Wave Power’s wave energy conversion unit has arrived on site at the Port of Jaffa, Israel, ahead of installation.
The device will be located on land, just like a regular power station, enabling an easy access for operation and maintenance, the company said.
The project, known as EWP-EDF One, is a collaboration with EDF Renewables, with co-funding from the Israeli Energy Ministry.
Eco Wave Power chief executive Inna Braverman said: “We are delighted with the progress the team has made so far.
“The conversion unit has arrived at site and everything is now in place for the installation work that will begin shortly.
“We are on track towards project finalisation and look forward to seeing our solution up and running in the port.
“This has been a large effort from multiple teams from Eco Wave Power and EDF Renewables IL, and we are pleased with how the project is looking at the moment.”
