SEATURNS is a French start-up developing a wave energy converter, its objective is to produce
electricity or produce freshwater by seawater desalination.
After a phase of technical and economic feasibility studies, SEATURNS has patented a breakthrough
wave energy converter. Using an innovative anchoring system, a cylindrical float is
rotated under the action of swell. Through the principle of the inner water pendulum, an alternative
air flow is generated between internal volumes. This flow rotates a turbine coupled
with a pump or a generator. This simple and robust system is designed to withstand hostile
conditions and reduce maintenance costs.
