Sea Wave Energy Ltd.
Stand 1.329 - Dutch Marine Energy Centre
Achieving power extraction from renewable sources at a cost lower than the one of fossil fuels is currently a long-term dream for the renewable energy industry. SWEL’s testing results indi cate that this seemingly unpassable barrier is within sight. SWEL is a R&D company based in the UK and Cyprus focusing on the design and development of its WEC – The “Waveline Magnet” (WLM). The company has modest onshore and offshore testing capabilities and facilities in Cyprus, where the R&D is carried out, and the model devices are built in-house. Both the PTO & prime mover can be built from recyclable materials and the PTO has been designed to use sea water instead of oil rendering the WLM as an environmen tally friendly solution.
