Our long standing vision has been to develop a new wave energy converter design from scratch to enable utility scale power production. The Atargis CycWEC achieves this goal by means of rotating hydrofoils that convert ocean wave energy into electric energy. It leverages technologies that have made wind energy one of the most cost efficient sources of renewable energy, and applies the lessons learned there to Ocean Wave Energy.
Since ocean waves a much more consistent resource, the CycWEC has the potential to surpass wind energy!
The CycWEC is the first wave termination device designed from the ground up in decades.
This enabled us to implement all the lessons learned from traditional designs
The CycWEC has a unique responsive design that adapts to the ever changing waves. This enables it to convert wave energy to electric energy efficiently. By avoiding storm loads, we can build a far more cost efficient device.
Hydrofoil lift, submerged operation, utility scale power
Althought the CycWEC is a novel technology, the design has passed through extensive scientific evaluation. The CycWEC's performance has been proven in both simulations and scaled lab wave tank experiments. It is ready for the next step - an open ocean test!
