Penguin Finishes 3rd Test Season with Success
Wello has successfully completed the third test season of the Penguin wave energy converter.
During this test season, the device was deployed on site six months continuously.
All components inside the device are still original from 2011 building further confidence to the durability and survivability of the design.
The Penguin wave energy converter solution is based on a floating vessel that captures the kinetic energy of waves and converts it into electrical power with a generator. The advantage of the floating vessel is reduced need for massive anchoring.
The device is based on industry standard components, including a generator typically used in wind turbines, to allow scalable manufacturing by virtually any shipyard using existing manufacturing processes.
