France Plans Wave Power Station

According to this
article from Forbes (6/20/05), Ocean Power Technologies LTD, a subsidiary of US company Ocean Power Technologies has signed an agreement with Total Energie Developpement SAS, a unit of Total SA, and Iberdrola SA to develop a wave power station in France. The article notes:

The company said the first stage of the project will involve the group identifying potential sites around the French coastline as well as gaining the necessary consents and permits. Once this is complete, a wave power station with a capacity of up to 2-5 MW will be installed in the second phase of the project.
In a separate statement, Total said it has bought a 10 pct interest in a pilot project offshore Santona, northern Spain, to develop ocean swell and wave power.
