NoviOcean Wave Energy Converter

The Science Behind Our Success

The NoviOcean Wave Energy Converter operates by ingeniously using buoyancy to capture the energy of ocean waves. Here's how it works:

How it Works


1. The rectangular shape resembles the wave’s shape.

2. When in the lowest point, valve closes, holding the float in a fixed position relative the sea floor.

3. The wave rises around the float, and up to three meters of the float is locked below water.

4. 600 cubic meters of air is trapped below surface.

5. Valve opens at correct pressure. 600 tons of lifting force pushes high pressure water onto the Pelton turbine, turning the generator.

Based on 3 well proven and simple parts:

Principles


1. large float
2. hydraulic cylinder
3. Pelton turbine

Simply the well-proven hydro power plant, taken to sea and inverted

Converting the slow wave motion to high-speed generator RPM, in the most simple and well proven way.

Lifting force vs surge force: 20 to 1!

Novige AB received a 2.1 million EUR grant from the European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency (CINEA) under the LIFE programme to design, build, deploy, test, and certify its first full-scale pilot WEC unit, NoviOcean NO500 in an offshore test site by 2025/26. NoviOcean WEC (rated at 500 kW) will utilize a low-weighted 38×7 square meter rectangular float and well-proven parts to produce clean/stable electricity at a commercially viable cost. Simple design, less use of materials, and recyclability, along with an effective global licensing strategy will facilitate local manufacturing, operation, and decommissioning using readily available resources. More details on the upcoming stages of building and deployment of the pilot unit will be disseminated on a continued basis to various project stakeholders.

Storm Survivability

Uniquely Low Drag Forces Lifting Force vs Surge Force: 20 to 1!

Pic simulation 1: Maximum draft and drag forces in lifting mode.

Pic simulation 2: Minimum draft when free floating in the descending phase, or initiated “survival mode”

In 25-meter rogue waves, the surge forces are at maximum 33 tons per side. This is unique in relation to the massive 600 tons of lifting force

Uniquely Low Drag Forces due to:

1. Low Draft (depth in water)

2. Free Floating Design

The proof is in the pudding!

The real performance matches the simulations to the point!

Simulations and tests show 3-30 times more output vs competition for the wave energy converter part

Extrapolated graphs based on offshore 1-6 scale prototype testing. The exact same model proves with no doubt the wave power unit will deliver 650 kW (after losses) in 4-meter waves. /Remember also to adjust to 650 kW.

1 MW Hybrid Solution

650 kW wave, 300 kW wind, 50 kW solar

(40% capacity factor | 3.5 GWh/unit/year)

NoviOcean’s lifting force by buoyancy

is 600 tons in four-meter waves for a float net area of 260 sq. meters (38 x 8 m)

the solutions not using buoyancy

need about 30x larger area to create a similar force. This equals about 8 000 sq. m or 800 x 10 meters, which will be far too heavy and costly

To extract the needed

high amounts of energy per ton of material in the ocean, buoyant concepts are in our opinion the only realistic solution. The others are simply way too costly vs output

NoviOcean Wave Energy Convrter 650 kW

Vertical Wind Turbines 300 kW

Solar Panels 50 kW

Vertical axis wind turbines increase Capacity Factor from average 30% to 70% due float shape

Capacity Factor for normal wind speed

6 m/s = 10%
7 m/s = 20%
8 m/s = 30%
9 m/s = 40%
10 m/s = 50%
11 m/s = 70%
12 m/s 80%

Plus 30% conservative added wind speed

6 m/s = 10% to 8 m/s = 30%
7 m/s = 20% to 10 m/s = 50%
8 m/s 30% to 11 m/s = 70%
9 m/s = 40% to 12 m/s = 80%
10 m/s = 50% to 13 m/s = 80%
11 m/s 70% = 80%
12 m/s = 80% = 80%

* 45% higher output than with only wave power

* 1.5 x the output vs offshore wind, for the same sea area, 2.5 x if combined, stable output

* Other floating wind and solar solutions have 75% the costs for only the structure, cable and moorings

* Our floating wind and solar cost: 25-40% of other solutions, plus survives the highest waves
