About Eco Wave Power
Eco Wave Power has developed its proprietary state-of-the-art wave energy converters, called the “Wave Clapper” and the “Power Wing.” These hi-tech wave energy converters rise and fall with the up and down motion, lifting force, change of water level, hydraulic air lock, and incident flux of waves.
The converters are attached by robust arms to any type of structure, such as breakwaters, piers, jetties, floating barriers, and fixed platforms. The Wave Clapper and the Power Wing are fully equipped with sensors, which continuously monitor the performance of the various subsystems and surrounding ocean environment. In the event of upcoming storms, the system will automatically recognize the type of waves, and decide whether to raise the converters over the water level, or submerge them under water, to protect them from damage.
