Details

Tittle:
Wave breaking structure functioning as high-efficient wave power plant looking for industrialization partners.
Summary:
A Swedish inventor has developed a wave power solution that could be integrated in a new or existing breakwater structure. By including the power generation in wave breaking, several benefits such as simplicity, robustness, utilization is achieved.
The inventor is now looking for actors that would be interested in proceeding with this patent-pending solution and take it to the market through a joint venture, license agreement, research or technical agreement.
Description:
This invention is a concept design of a wave power conversion system that is integrated in a wave breaking structure. Compared to today´s existing wave energy converting systems, this design is much simpler and water energy effective.

The unit´s simple structure with few moving parts gives reduced maintenance costs. The patent-pending solution is suitable to install in areas with need of seashore protection in order to reduce the erosion effect caused by incoming waves. It is intended to be located at about 50-500 meters from the shore, and can be integrated in existing wave breaking piers or walls.

The inventor is now looking for actors that would be interested in proceeding with this patent-pending solution and take it to the market through a joint venture, license agreement, research or technical agreement.
Advantages and Innovations:
This solution is advantageous in the following aspects:

- Simplicity
It does not include any moving parts (lines, buoys or similar), except for the turbine parts, giving low production and maintenance costs.

- Robustness
The major part of the structure is located below the water surface, decreasing the risk of damages/malfunctions from external interference or ice building.

- Water energy utilization
A significant part of every wave´s water amount is being harnessed, and no consistent wave frequency is required.

- Integrated in wave breaking structures
The ability to integrate the technology in existing or new installed wave breakers is beneficial to the overall installation costs.
