Enabling Remote Operation of Offshore Equipment
Bolt Lifesaver ocean sensor demonstration at the US Navy test site in Hawaii was completed as of Jan. 28th 2019 after 108 days of installation, 99.1% uptime and 8.000kWh of energy produced. Lifesaver will be recovered at first weather window for disassembly and return to Europe by June 2019. Day-by-day statistics summarized below:
“…the world’s first demonstration of the potentially transformative capability for WECs to enable persistent oceanographic observation and UUV re-charge without a cable to shore” US Navy press releaseDownload Stand-alone power product document
Since 2003, we have built and operated five different wave energy converters in three different countries. Accumulated over 64.000 hours of in-sea operation and 15.000 hours of energy production. These are world leading figures.
This has given us a firm understanding of the limitations and possibilities of wave generated electricity.
Building technical solutions brick by brick in collaboration with leading technology companies like Siemens and Gates Corporation, we have developed a low maintenance, high reliability power take-off technology for generation of electricity from ocean waves.
BOLT Sea Power offer buoys that provides a locally generated power supply for offshore and subsea equipment, in addition offering a reliable low latency communication line to shore for remote operation..
