Limerick Wave Ltd.
Limerick Wave Ltd have developed a mechanical power take off (PTO) mechanism that converts the motion of the waves to electrical power.
How Limerick Wave Power Take Off (PTO) technology works with an existing Wave Energy Converter (WEC) technology of COPPE in conjunction with Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte.
Wave Energy Converter (WEC)
The Limerick Wave PTO technology is suited to any WEC device that captures the two way motion of the waves. This two way motion is mechanically converted into one direction to drive an electrical generator that along with the PTO is protected from the harsh environment of the sea.
