We are more than proud with the support we receive from the community of Knokke-Heist, Belgium. Today, the installation of the high voltage cabins is a fact. This is a major step in demonstrating our technology to the world. The construction of the basin of 100 by 100 started in August 2021 and is ready for the next steps. With the grid connection we now can proceed with the installation of our machine and run the necessary dry tests before filling the basin with water.
In Knokke-Heist, innovation and sustainability are high on the agenda. Besides, we are the surfing municipality par excellence,” says Mayor Piet De Groote. “AllWaves’ innovative and unique project immediately appealed to us. We are very pleased that the test facility will be opening in spring to demonstrate the uniqueness of the technology. Network operator Fluvius went in search of the right electrical capacities and just realized the electricity connection. That is an important technical milestone to be able to showcase the technology.”
We plan to open our show room in spring. Belgian surf pioneer Frank Vanleenhove, founding father of the famous water sport clubs Surfers & Lakeside Paradise, brings in his surfing experience together with international experts representing the surfer’s community. They will help us in further fine tuning the waves profiles for all levels of surfers.
Of course, potential clients from all over the world are welcome to personally experience their favourite waves.
