Oceans of wave energy

Robust, efficient and cost effective


Crestwing wave energy devices are designed to the site where they are to be placed.

The installed capacity is determined by the wave environment at that location.

It could be a device that is 30m long with an installed capacity of 100kW, or it could be a 100m long device with an installed capacity of 3MW or in the not so distant future it could be devices that are 250m long with an installed capacity of 10MW.

Installed power and energy production depends on each location and so does the MWh price.

The better the location, the lower the MWh price. The price of electricity produced at Crestwing parks will, after the installation of about 10MW, reach same level as the market price of electricity.

Crestwings technology is special


Crestwing has solved the biggest challenges of wave energy - the high costs producing the plants, the low power generation and the challenges of accidents. Crestwing is in no way similar to other wave energy plants and utilizes the energy of the waves in a unique way, as the plant mainly utilizes atmospheric pressure for the production of energy.

Design


It is easy to carry out service and

maintenance on Crestwing, as you board the plant as a ship.

Power Take Off


The Power Take Off system is mechanical and converts about 90 percent of the absorbed energy into electricity.

Anchoring


Crestwing has developed a unique anchoring system, that minimizes environmental impact on the ocean and the seabed.



Development phases

The basic idea behind the development of Crestwing, has been to develop a wave energy plant that:

Is stable and safe on the sea.

Utilizes a high percentage of the incoming energy from the waves.

Efficiently transforms the absorbed energy into production of electricity.

Consider maintenance and service.

The development has gone from small models in wave tanks to the prototype at sea. 


The concept has been developed and optimised, but the basic idea has never been changed, it has proven to be scalable
