NOVACAVI Cables for ISWEC Prototype

NOVACAVI has contributed to the development of technologies that convert sea wave power into electrical energy, with a special custom cable engineered to connect the pilot unit moored offshore to the network of the ISWEC prototype (Inertial Sea Wave Energy Converter) within the Eni MaREnergy research programme.

Installed offshore Ravenna by ENI, ISWEC is the world’s first example of the “smart grid” system for the production of wave energy combined with photovoltaic and energy storage.

Essential features of this cable specially designed and manufactured for Wave for Energy, spin off of Polytechnic University of Turin: water tightness, high breaking resistance and long dynamic life performance in water all together calibrated for this specific particularly burdensome application.
