Providing Clean, Reliable and Affordable Wave Energy from the North Sea


The floater can be entered via an air tight lock as inside the climate is controlled. The floater is kept under a constant over pressure of ca. 0,1 bar to prevent salt water or vapours to enter. This way the hydraulic and electric systems are protected and can be maintained in a controlled environment. If any leak might occur, it'll be instantly noticed by a pressure drop but water still can't enter due to the over pressure. The leaking air will be supplanted by a compressor until repairs are ffinished. 

The prototype is 20m long, 8m deep and has a 2,5 m diameter floater. The 70 t/MW machine is optimised for North Sea conditions with resonance blades that reach till about 3m under the surface to capture the lion share of the North Sea wave energy.
