Wenverter Ltd. is an R&D company with the mission to unlock ocean wave power. Its
cornerstone product is called WenverterTM. The name is an abbreviation of the words wave
energy converter. The Wenverter device is an oscillating wave surge converter which captures
wave energy by a flap. Its power take-off is part of the flap and is made of off-the-shelf,
non-hydraulic mechanical parts. The PTO is entirely enclosed and fully protected from the
corrosive sea-water. The device’s architecture allows for installations in variable depths and
co-location with offshore wind parks. Wenverter operates fixed underwater and at a constant
and safe distance from offshore wind turbine foundations. The device has a very high energy
conversion efficiency and is an award winner of the recent North-West Europe Marine Energy
Alliance competition.
