Eco Wave Power Tests Medium-Scale Wave Energy Generation System in the Black Sea.
Eco Wave Power (EWP) has successfully installed a medium-scale wave energy power plant, in the Black Sea. The Black Sea provided Eco Wave Power with real-life conditions necessary for the testing of EWP's wave energy devices under uncontrolled wave heights and wave periods.
Among the different tests, Eco Wave Power has examined the characteristics of 2 different floaters shapes, the "Wave Clapper" and the "Power Wing", and also performed the measuring of the KW output in different wave heights and periods, measuring the influence of side waves on the floaters and the connections, connecting the floaters to electric devices and showing an electricity supply (with and without an accumulator), examining the influence of floaters in proximity to each other, examining the option to unite both floaters to one electric grid and charge a common accumulator, as well as -examining the floaters' storm-protection Mechanisms
The next phase of EWP will be to move the medium-scale power plant to a different coastal structure, in order to show potential clients that EWP's wave energy generation system can be easily connected to almost any ocean structure. After this, EWP will build its first commercial scale Sea Wave Power Plant, and reveal the construction and production prices, this will be cheaper than any other renewable or traditional energy generation system.
