Blackbird International Corporation, a wave energy technology company, announced a major milestone for the company.
Israel Enden from WERPO traveled to its capital, Ahmadabad and met the Cabinet Minister of Energy with his personnel and they have great interest in implementing WERPO’s technology to their state.
They introduced WERPO to GEDA, India’s Government agency dedicated to exploring new technologies in the renewable energy sector. The directors of the Institute are planning a trip to examine the WERPO power station model at WERPO’s headquarters in Tel Aviv. They expressed the interest to implement its technology all over India’s market of 1.1 Billion potential customers.
Most importantly, WERPO has also met investors in India who are willing to fund this technology and would like to set up a WERPO subsidiary in India to start building power stations. Construction would start in Gujarat with a 10 MW power station and eventually expanding all over India.
Shmuel Ovadia, director at WERPO and inventor of its proprietary sea wave energy technology, stated, “India is one of WERPO’s strategic locations; it has the potential to supply enough energy for all of India due to the region’s vast expanse of ocean. This is most important since there is a growing demand of energy in India.”
