Abstract

A private inventor from Latvia has worked out a technology for a highly efficient ocean-wave power station. Sensitive and moving receivers transform the wave energy into electrical power. The inventor is looking for partnership and financial resources.



Details

The main advantage of the wave power station is that receivers of the energy change orientation according to the wave direction. The active elements are pipes with special valves. The energy is transferred to hydraulic mechanism before transforming to electrical power. The calculated efficiency coefficient is ~30%. The power station is constructed as a float, taking into account the depth of the sea, wave parameters and other factors of local situation. The additional advantage of the technology is a possibility to use the power station as a docking place for sea transport. The inventor offers “know-how” of the technology and is looking for financial resources and partnership.

Innovative Aspects:
- The sensitive wave receivers guarantee a high efficiency.
- The wave receivers are able to change orientation according to the wave and wind direction.
- Simple maintenance of the power station.
