Competitive Analysis

Compared with other types of wave energy converters, FWEPS has several exceptional technical features owing to:

  • oscillatory property of the device – which can be matched with outer wave space, thus giving the most effective mode for energyconversion;
  • sustainable operation at varying lengths, velocities and intensities of waves and directions, adapting to changeable external conditions;
  • reliability and prolonged life due to a waterproof capsule-float that protects elements of the device from the corrosive attack of sea water andspray;
  • possibility of device deployment directly into seas and oceans, in places unsuitable for human life or navigation as well as possibility of FWEPS location change in accordance with regional wave activity, seasonal or other reasons;
  • simplicity of mounting and dismounting; operates unattended and therefore has a low operating cost.
