Swedish-Israeli wave energy company Eco Wave Power is looking to expand its team with two new vacancies up for grabs.

Eco Wave Power is looking to hire a director of finance, and a business development and sales manager that would help the company accelerate the development of its wave energy projects worldwide.

As director of finance for Eco Wave Power, the successful candidate will be tasked with strategic planning for mergers and acquisitions (M&As) and other relevant transactions in the energy industry – such as joint ventures, shares allocation, projects finance and so on.

Among other responsibilities, such as working on complicated transactions in the energy industry such as actual and virtual power purchase agreements (PPAs), Eco Wave Power’s new director of finance will also be in charge of preparation of documentation and the creation of financial forecasts to be used internally by the company and for obtaining debt financing for international renewable energy projects.

The second position currently vacant at Eco Wave Power is for a business development and sales manager, whose responsibilities include prospecting, building a customer pipeline, moving opportunities through the sales cycle – proposing, presenting, and discussing projects with senior level and other decision-makers.

Also, the selected candidate will be taking care of licensing of projects and the execution of sophisticated collaborations with policy makers, strategic partners, financial partners, and others, while also identifying new business opportunities with potential partners and customers.

Eco Wave Power has developed an onshore wave energy system suitable for deployments in ports or jetties. The company is developing a number of projects across the globe – the most recent being the project in Spain that could see the 2MW wave energy plant constructed on the island of Mallorca, at the Port Adriano.

The company has also set its sight on the United States market, with two potential projects in the pipeline on the opposite sides of the country.

Namely, Eco Wave Power has signed an agreement with AltaSea to develop a wave power plant on its premises in the Port of Los Angeles, while it is also exploring options for a potential power plant in New Jersey.

In addition, Eco Wave Power is currently installing 10 wave energy floaters in the Port of Jaffa in Israel as part of the EWP-EDF One project.
