Contribution to technology development

PWP defined four common areas for joint development, which has been detailed in Road Maps

Moorings

A joint research project with focus on new mooring systems for floating devices which can improve reliability, lifespan as well as be developed with reduced costs.

 

PTO

Development and testing of Power Take Off PTO technology in the wave energy converters by evaluation of efficiency, price, maintenance etc.

 

Electrical

Development and testing of a flexible power cable that connect a floating wave energy device to a fixed point on the seabed (umbilical). This challenge is closely connected to the mooring system.

Materials

A joint research project focused on materials and components tested on prototypes, documenting experiences concerning reliability, fouling, corrosion etc. from testing.
