Wave energy converters
Oceans transport huge amounts of energy in the form of waves. The exploitation of this resource has progressed continuously over the years but its practical implementation as a reliable and economically viable source of energy at a global scale is still behind the records achieved by other renewable energy sources such as wind.
Esteyco Mechanics supports the development of new technologies for Wave Energy Converters, either at conceptual or detailed design phases. Esteyco Mechanics also provides added value services in the design, fabrication and assembly of prototypes for testing these technologies. A combined approach merging distinct capabilities in the fields of wave mechanics, dynamic response of floating systems, structural / mechanical design and control systems is offered to our clients in order to safely and efficiently bring conceptual designs into optimized final designs and prototypes.
