The peaks of the captured power are more than 10 times higher than the average, even within a given sea state.
The peak power is equivalent to the investment / life cycle cost of a wave energy converter and the average power production over the year is equivalent to the income. Read more
OHT offers an ingenious power take-off for wave power. A mechanical gearbox and a gravity accumulator efficiently and economically converts the highly intermittent and irregular power captured from the wave motion into a smooth speed and torque to the generator.
The technology shows excellent capabilities to meet the challenges for wave power, and will thus reduce the cost of energy as well as ensure that grid quality requirements are met. Read more
The technology is offered to other wave energy converter (WEC) developers in two alternative ways:
