Eco Wave Successfully Test Two Wave Energy Devices

 
Eco Wave Power has successfully completed its April test of a medium-scale wave energy power plant in the Black Sea made up of two different floater shapes, the “Wave Clapper” and the “Power Wing”.

“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,” Eco Wave said in their press release.

The test put both the Wave Clapper and the Power Wing to test in extreme conditions, including a storm during the 18th and 19th of April where wave height reached 5 metres, which left both styles of wave energy device suffering no damage.

The examination also completed tests “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 results showed that 2 medium-scale wave energy devices are sufficient for the production of electricity for 6 to 10 households. Next for Eco Wave will be to move the medium-scale power plant to a different coastal structure to show potential clients that the wave generation systems can be easily connected to almost any ocean structure. Following that, EWP plans to build its first commercial-scale Sea Wave Power Plant.
