blueWAVE™ - Deep Water Application

The blueWAVE™ device is a cluster of oscillating water columns designed for deep water application and large utility scale power generation

 

 

The blueWAVE™ structure comprises a cluster of floating OWCs joined by a space-frame.  It is an anchored floating steel device, located in approximately 40-80m of water.

 

By clustering OWCs there is a reduction in electrical infrastructure required, which reduces cost and increases efficiency.  The top of each row extends above sea level, where a single airWAVE™ turbine and the electrical control systems are housed.

 

Deployment 

Each blueWAVE™ device is floated to its deployment site, where the task of securing the anchoring system takes place.  The method of anchoring the device to the bottom of the ocean depends on the geotechnical nature of the seabed, whilst utilising gravity, drag, and suction anchors.

 

Electrical Output 

The electrical output of the blueWAVE™ device will depend on the local wave climate.  In a good climate, a single blueWAVE™ device would be rated at 3MW or more.

 

The unit can be dedicated to the production of electricity, desalinated seawater, or both.

 

Key Features 

  • Clustering OWCs reduce cost and increase efficiency

  • No moving parts under water

  • Dual electricity and desalinated water production

  • Built to deliver 30 years continuous operation
