Une technologie présentée comme idéale pour les îles, qui peut déjà concurrencer le fioul et pourra bientôt s'attaquer au charbon… Protean Wave Energy. Azura Wave. Le Pérou autorise le projet houlomoteur d'Atmocean. Our Technology - WERPO wave energy. WERPO’s technology, initially developed under SDE Ltd., is based on the utilization of sea waves to yield hydraulic pressure that produces electricity, while exploiting the full potential of wave speed, height, depth, rise and fall, and currents beneath the surface of the water.

Our Technology - WERPO wave energy

This unique technology is the best choice in renewable energy systems due to its high energy efficiency, low cost for power generation, it being made-up of few moving parts and that only 10% of the system is submerged in the water – this reduces the overall risk to the system and substantially lowers maintenance costs. In addition, the system is made up of modular components which require little space on land and can be implemented in any terrain easily. This allows for quick implementation since the system can begin producing energy before the final construction stages. In addition the system can be connected to an existing power grid with only minor adjustments. Résultats publiés pour l'Oyster 800 d'Aquamarine - France Energies Marines.

(OWC) Basque Government funding WEC. In Collaboration with Iberdrola Ingeniería-led Consortium, Dresser-Rand Introduces Wave Energy Capabilities to the Basque Country HOUSTON, February 19, 2013 - Dresser-Rand, a global supplier of rotating equipment solutions to the oil, gas, petrochemical, power, and process industries, in collaboration with Spanish electric company Iberdrola Ingeniería and other companies, received the Etorgai Grant from the Basque government to help fund the development of a new offshore wave energy power technology which will increase renewable energy share to the Basque Country.

Dresser-Rand, Iberdrola Ingeniería et les autres membres du consortium (Oceantec, Ingeteam, ITSASKORDA, Jema, Obeki, Vicinay, et Zigor Corporación) ont en projet un dispositif d’énergie des vagues sur la côte basque espagnole. La nouvelle technologie utilisera notamment la turbine à rayon variable, HydroAir, système breveté par Dresser-Rand. – lauramae

The new technology will use an array of wave energy converters (WECS), including Dresser-Rand's patented HydroAir ™ variable radius turbine (VRT), to convert the waves' energy into electricity for Basque Country residents.

The first stage of the project focuses on modeling the behavior of the elements of a power plant. Dresser-Rand HydroAir Variable Radius Turbine. OWCs can be located on the shoreline, near-shore or offshore.

Dresser-Rand HydroAir Variable Radius Turbine

Incoming surface waves induce an oscillating flow of air within the chamber which, in turn, flows backwards and forwards through an air turbine installed in a duct connecting the chamber to the atmosphere. The turbine converts this air movement into electrical energy. The challenge of OWC technology is to achieve satisfactory efficiency over a wide operating range. The airflow not only varies between zero and 100 percent, but also changes direction. At the same time, the shaft rotation must be maintained in one direction (i.e. clockwise rotation).

WaveRoller is a device that converts ocean waves to energy and electricity. The machine operates in near-shore areas (approximately 0.3-2 km from the shore) at depths of between 8 and 20 meters. Depending on tidal conditions it is mostly or fully submerged and anchored to the seabed. A single WaveRoller unit (one panel) is rated at between 500kW and 1000kW, with a capacity factor of 25-50% depending on wave conditions at the project site. The simple yet very powerful idea for the design of WaveRoller came in a moment of enlightenment when Finnish professional diver Rauno Koivusaari was exploring a shipwreck.

WaveRoller behaves in essentially the same way as the flat part of the wreck that Rauno observed. To maximize the energy that WaveRoller panel can absorb from the waves, the device is installed under water at depths of approximately 8 – 20 meters, where the wave surge is most powerful. WaveRoller: un nouveau démonstrateur au Chili. Daily News N°330 – 05/02/2013 – Une délégation finlandaise, menée par le Premier ministre finlandais Jyrki Katainen, a récemment signé un protocole d’accord de coopération dans le secteur de l’énergie entre le Chili et la Finlande.
