Technology

Wavecos wave power solution is based on the turbine invention from 2014 by Inge Bakke, the founder of Waveco. The Subwave turbine, called so because it will operate in the safe haven below the wave zone, is a double-winged, counter-rotating water mill, hanging about a 100 meters under a buoy floating on the surface. When the buoy is affected by ocean waves, the turbine will alternately be lifted up and sinking down in the calm and dark water in the depth, forcing the wings to excert torque on the rotors and generate electricity.

Model

A model is made and tested in sea and towing tank. Several tests will be conducted to learn more about wing design with regard to rigidity and shape. The model has a diameter of one meter. Full size for energy production will probably be about 15 meters.
