A Wave 2OTM system deployment typically employs several wave energy converters (WECs) that pressurize seawater which is piped ashore to directly drive a seawater reverse-osmosis (RO) desalination system. Wave2OTM systems include several proprietary innovations including:
- a system and process for rapid and safe WEC deployments in remote areas;
- a system design that is easy to maintain which enables long-term reliable operation;
- an efficient RO process that eliminates two energy conversion steps.
Wave2OTM systems are readily scalable which enables “just in time” adjustments to production capacity. This is because the entire Wave2OTM system is packaged in standard marine containers and can be installed in a matter of days which allows water resource managers to more precisely match supply with demand without the need for massive infrastructure investments in pipelines, canals, and electrical production and transmission assets.
