Cyprus-based Cyprus-based Sea Wave Energy Limited (SWEL) has been working on their Waveline Magnet Concept, which is a technology that can harness electricity from ocean waves. Simply put, the technology consists of multiple floating platforms that are connected to one another, resembling a spine. These platforms are flexible and modular, allowing them to follow the motion of the waves.
The spine-like design does serve a purpose, as that is the central power system that stores the harnessed energy. SWEL claims that a single Wave Energy Converter (WEC) can generate 100 MW in ideal conditions and can be scaled to suit the wave environment. Speaking of magnets, have you seen this strange magnetic ferrofluid Bluetooth speaker?
- Prop It Up: Features a versatile built-in foldable kickstand that keeps your iPhone 14/13/12 upright for a comfortable viewing angle.
- Strong and Snappy:The super-strong magnet snaps magnetically into place to ensure perfect alignment and an efficient charge.
- Slim and Compact: The sleek and slim design is only 0.5 inch (12.8 mm) thin, so you can single-handedly take calls, selfies, and more.
SWEL is incredibly grateful to MEA and partners for providing, assisting, and coordinating this complex process, paving the way for its passionate team to carry the technology forward. The standard characterization of wave power routes back to Archimedes’ principle of buoyancy and displacement theory. This however is just one part of the process, the upwards force on a displaced body,” said the company.
