Wave generator developed in SUBMARINER awarded first prize in innovation contest

wave_generator_balttechnika_exhib_303x148Within the SUBMARINER project, Klaipeda University Coastal Research and Planning Institute (CORPI) has developed a prototype for generating energy from waves. The linear generator – an essential part of the prototype – has now been awarded the first prize in the “engines” category in an innovation contest at the 2012 BALTTECHNIKA exhibition in Vilnius. The wave energy device prototype has been designed to meet the specific conditions of the Baltic Sea – occasional harsh storms and relatively low energy in a yearly run. The further development is concentrated on minimising the investment costs and maximising the generator’s efficiency.
