SINN Power unveils floating ocean hybrid platform
German developer SINN Power will offer solar panel manufacturers the opportunity to demonstrate and test their PV modules on a floating platform in Iraklio, Greece.
The goal is to internationalise SINN Power’s ocean hybrid platform as a complete off-grid energy solution.
The company has worked on innovative wave energy systems since 2015.
After years of R&D, SINN Power developed a maritime structure to generate renewable energy from waves, wind and PV.
Dr-Ing. Philipp Sinn, CEO, SINN Power, said:
“Modularity has been a key aspect since we started developing maritime technologies which allows flexibility and a wide variety of applications.
“SINN Power is the first to offer a customizable energy solution using waves, small wind and PV according to climatic conditions of any location and at competitive prices compared to other proven technologies.”
According to the company, tests of the structure show that it withstands waves up to six meters high.
At the same time, this opens doors for a global market within the renewable energy industry.
Therefore, the company’s floating structure provides harsh regions access to renewable energy and ocean energy solutions.
The solution comes at a competitive price and increased base load capacity compared to conventional renewable energy systems with storage.
