ASME 2015 34th International Conference on Ocean, Offshore and Arctic Engineering (OMAE2015).
St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada from May 31 – June 5, 2015.
The PolyWEC consortium will be presenting the result of their study on a novel floating Poly-OWC system (see the attached picture), developed in collaboration with the Spanish company Sendekia. The new system is based on an inflatable dielectric elastomer PTO able to convert the pneumatic pressure stored in an air-chamber into pulsating direct current electricity. During the conference the results of a preliminary evaluation will be shown.
