Electrical power generation from ocean waves

  • Harvests wave energy with daily trips to offshore locations and returns back to port for delivery to the grid
  • Energy is stored locally on the vessel during harvesting phase
  • Energy is placed on the grid during periods of high demand (normally mid-day)
  • Eliminates expensive undersea power cables needed for other wave energy technologies
  • Can be moved safely to port during severe storms
  • Overcomes regulatory hurdles by not being a permanent structure
