Per is an entrepreneur and the founder of Resen Waves. He has been a leading innovator of technologies for use in the oceans and seas of the world for the past 45 years! His passion for the environment combined with lessons learned from failures in large scale wave technology has led to the development of a functional and affordable wave energy system - the patented Resen Waves Smart Power Buoy. Our buoy provides clean, renewable power at the same time as facilitating persistent and almost unlimited data transmission.

A passion for the environment plus strong technological and design skills obviously run in the family as Thomas clearly demonstrates in his role as digital advisor and web designer for Resen Waves. He is pursuing his studies, gaining commercial experience whilst helping to increase awareness of Resen Waves and our values. He’s a valued member of the team who brings a different generational view and ensures we keep up to date with digital marketing developments.
Associate Professor, Department of the Built Environment; The Faculty of Engineering and Science; Division of Water and Environment; Ocean and Coastal Engineering Research Group.
Peter Frigaard’s independent testing and feedback has been highly valued since the inception of Resen Waves and throughout the evolution of the Smart Power Buoy.
He is Head of Department and Associate Professor at Aalborg University (AAU), Department of Civil Engineering which has a strong record of participation in the development of wave energy in Denmark over the last 10 years. More than 60 projects have been carried out on approximately 30 different devices – of which tank testing the Smart Power Buoy to verify our ground-breaking numerical model is just one. His research interests include national and international wave energy studies, and breakwater monitoring. He is a key player in developing and defining best practices and standards nationally and internationally. Find out more about AAU’s laboratories here.
Professor, Department of Mechanical Engineering; Fluid Mechanics, Coastal and Maritime Engineering at Technical University of Denmark (DTU).
Harry is a highly respected and widely published professor who teaches and researches nonlinear ocean waves and their interaction with fixed and floating marine structures at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU). The DTU has a mission to help create a better world and to solve the global climate challenges formulated in the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals – which is perfectly aligned with Resen Waves’ aim to support this via the provision of accessible and affordable wave energy. Harry’s research and guidance of the MSc students who contribute to Resen Waves has been a critical factor in the development of our leading numerical model.

Senior Researcher DTU Mechanical Engineering
Robert researches how water waves interact with engineered structures in the open ocean, with a special focus on accelerating the development of wave-energy absorbers like our Smart Power Buoy. He delivers high-quality numerical tools and experimental data to industrial partners to improve product performance and reduce costs. His expertise will help us to better understand the hydrodynamic performance of our buoy, both to verify its energy absorption, and to confirm its survivability. Robert plays a key role alongside Prof. Harry B Bingham and our two MSc students (Daniel Enevoldsen and Alicia Belda Leandro) in developing and verifying our powerful numerical model. Find out more about Robert and the work he is involved in here.
In 2020 Daniel became a valued member of the Resen Waves team. His work helping to develop and verify our numerical model alongside Professor Harry Bingham (DTU) and Senior Researcher Robert Read has been invaluable. Daniel’s part of the project is to look at the 3d motions of the buoy and the non-linear force in the mooring cable with the aim of predicting the power output from this. We look forward to sharing more of his results and findings once his thesis, ‘Numerical and experimental investigation of the RESEN wave energy device’ is published.

Alicia is a recent and very welcome recruit to the Resen Waves team. She’s passionate about Civil Engineering and will complete her Double Degree Master’s program in Civil Engineering (with focus on Marine and Coastal Engineering between Spain and Denmark) by carrying out her MSc thesis project to optimize the geometry of the Resen Waves buoy. The overall aim of her thesis is to enable the buoy to produce the maximum amount of power whilst guaranteeing survivability using numerical modelling combined with wave tank verification.
