Eco Wave Power has recently completed construction and subsequent testing of its first sea wave energy generation models, known as the “Wave Clapper” and the “Power Wing”.
The testing took place in the wave pool of the Hydro-Mechanical National Institute of Kiev and provided Eco Wave Power the perfect environment to test their new wave energy generation technologies under controlled wave heights and wave periods.
The Protocol, submitted to Eco Wave Power by the Hydro-Mechanic Institute, has concluded the experiments as following: “All floaters of Eco Wave Power Company have proved their workability… According to the results of the tests, we have reached a decision to recommend continuing the development of the green energy generation system that is based on such principles, and enlarge the model to greater sizes.”
The next step for Eco Wave Power is to move on to creating medium-scale models which will be capable of producing 5KW from each device. The model will include one “Wave Claper” and one “Power Wing” and testing is expected to begin early in 2012.
“We are a young and innovative company in the field of ocean energy. As a result, we believe in a fast, yet reliable, progress,” said Mr. David Leb , the founder of the company. “Our competitors in the ocean energy sphere had spent 5 to 15 years researching the ocean energy field, resulting with no commercial scale devices available for sale and implementation. We want to be different. We want to be able to offer our commercial scale devices within the shortest time frame, and for the most attractive prices.”
