Internship / Master Thesis: Metocean Data Analysis

Doing your intership/Master Thesis at CorPower Ocean you will be part of a world class team, determined to make big impact. We are on a mission to bring reliable and competitive wave energy to the world. We offer a high degree of autonomy and flexibility, combined with great personal responsibility. CorPower Ocean is a global leader in wave energy, with a technology that has shown game-changing performance. Your work will contribute to the global transition to renewable energy by unlocking one of the largest untapped sources of clean energy on earth.

Project description  

In order to evaluate potential sites for wave energy production around the world, CorPower performs various analyses of data related to such sites. The location must satisfy a set of specific criteria to be qualified for economically viable deployment of wave energy technology 

This project is focused on the analysis of large met-ocean datasets used for such site evaluations. The wave and wind datasets of interest include both in-situ and satellite measurements, as well as model data. 

Another aspect of the project is to study the benefits of adding wave energy into a country's/region's energy mix in terms of stability of the electric system, price of electricity and total system cost,  

Profile: We are looking for a student pursuing a Master degree in a related field (mathematics, data science, computer science, energy systems, oceanography). You are well organised, have good work ethics, and are familiar with the data science metodology. You are a creative mind with attention for details.  

Technical field: Data Science, Energy systems 

When:  Autumn/Winter 2021, at least 4 months, preferably a few months longer 


  • Screening of online data sources for wave and offshore wind and updating our inhouse data catalogue 
  • Continuing development of existing tools for data analysis and report generations 
  • Support international collaboration work to study added value of wave energy to the electricity system of various geographical locations 
  • Support our commercial team answering potential customers or investors interested in various geographical markets 


  • You can program in python (or Octave) 
  • You are comfortable using Ubuntu as on Operating System 
  • You are familiar with the Jupyter Notebook environment
