Ocean Harvesting Technologies AB (OHT) is a privately held company founded in 2007 to develop wave power technology. R&D has been focused on optimal control to maximize energy production and to control the buoy motion and load case. Significant effort has also gone into energy storage solutions and how to integrate them in the system to smoothen captured wave power into a constant and predictable output. Since 2017 focus has been on developing InfinityWEC, a 500 kW wave energy converter with advanced control technology to maximize energy output from every wave, designed to use mainly low cost, low carbon and circular materials.

The company is based in Karlskrona and Göteborg, Sweden. Lundin Foundation, Mikael Sidenmark with family and regional insurance companies (Länsförsäkringar) in Blekinge, Kalmar and Älvsborg län are the main shareholders. OHT is a proud receiver of grant financing from the Swedish Energy Agency and participates in several joint industry projects co-ordinated by RISE Research Institutes of Sweden.
