It is an innovative sea wave energy converter.
Although there are many systems for converting motion of the waves, this device is innovative because the particular mechanism adopted allows the conversion into electrical energy of the waves in any direction. The machine is comparable to a buoy immersion is environmentally friendly and easy to build. Can be modulated by merging multiple buoys in a row.
It has no need to be anchored to the seabed and can therefore be used in any situation in depth. It can be used either in seas and lakes.
The overall dimensions are reduced and each buoy is capable of producing 10 kW of electric power consistent with the motion of the waves.
