Installing the a 1:2 Scaled Prototype of the ISWEC for Decarbonizing Offshore Operations
Wave energy is one of the largest untapped renewable energy resources on the planet.
The ISWEC converts the energy of ocean waves into electrical energy for off-shore plants or coastal communities. In 2018, in collaboration with ENI (link) we deployed the first pilot plant to supply electricity to the PC80 platform offshore plant in Ravenna.
This pilot demonstrated the possibility to increase the energy self-sufficiency of offshore structures, even in geographical contexts where an electricity supply cannot be taken for granted.
