German company Sinn Power has come up with an innovative clean energy solution for people living close to the coast. Company has proposed a hybrid offshore power generation platform that can generate renewable energy from waves, wind and solar.
Although offshore wave energy conversion (WEC) is not a new concept, SINN Power’s platform is built to be modular. Being modular this platform is very easy to connect and expand. You can even add or remove sections.
Depending upon your power needs and your location, the platform can be specified with any or all of these features. This platform is designed to handle waves up to six meters (19.6 ft) in height. It can generate energy from waves up to 2 m (6.5 ft) high.
Dr-Ing. Philipp Sinn, chief executive officer of SINN Power, said, “Modularity has been a key aspect since we started developing maritime technologies which allows flexibility and a wide variety of applications,”
He added, “The floating platform can supply renewable energy to island resorts in the Caribbean and contribute to the worldwide implementation of offshore wind farms. SINN Power is the first to offer a customizable energy solution using waves, small wind and PV according to climatic conditions of any location and at competitive prices compared to other proven technologies.”
Company is offering solar panel manufacturers the opportunity to demonstrate and test their PV modules on this platform in Iraklio, Greece this summer.
