Eco Wave Power in Negotiations for Constructing Commercial-Scale Wave Energy Generators

Eco Wave Power, an international ocean wave energy company, has announced that the company is progressing towards a commercial scale wave energy power plant.

Eco Wave Power has developed a novel technology for extracting the energy from sea and ocean waves and then converting it into electricity. The company has patented a number of its unique inventions including its "Wave Clapper" and "Power Wing" inventions.

The company has designed an Eco Wave Power generating unit that can be used for harvesting energy from low and high waves. The unit is simple, strong and cost-effective. Eco Wave Power has completed construction and testing of a mid-scale model of its Eco Wave Power wave energy generating unit. This has helped prove the possibility of utilizing ocean wave energy for producing electricity at lower cost.

The Eco Wave Power generating unit is a robust system. It consists of an effective energy control system, and three protection mechanisms to withstand storms. The system also includes protection to withstand shock-waves, and corrosion. During testing, the mid-scale power station has proved its ability to withstand two major storms. It has also been tested in two different types of breakwaters.

The Israel-based company had recently been awarded the 2012 Frost & Sullivan New Product Innovation Award. This honor was for developing and applying an effective solution for harvesting the energy from ocean waves.

Presently, Eco Wave Power is negotiating contracts with several ports for constructing commercial-scale ocean and sea wave energy generators.
