Powerpier – damping waves and producing electricity
Powerpier is a concept that uses the wave energy converters to eliminate waves from the top and down, so clients don’t have to fill up a traditional pier from the bottom and up. Specially suitable and competitive for piers located in deeper waters. The converters can do the damping job with only that purpose, but the oscillating water columns will anyhow produce a lot of air pressure that can be utilized for low cost power production. The low cost is related to the fact that the produced electrizity only is related to the turbines, generators and electro system, without any structural costs which comes «free» from the pier end of the installation. Hydrogen production could be a suitable product from the produced wave energy.
