CLIENT: Langlee Wave Power
COUNTRY: Norway / Spain
Langlee Wave Power is a Norwegian company developing innovative technology that harnesses the energy of the sea by means of a semi-submersible floating installation that converts wave motion into electrical energy. For this purpose, a 132kW prototype was being developed.
The work that IDOM developed for this prototype included the design of the Power Take-Off (PTO), responsible for converting mechanical wave energy into useful electrical energy.
Both the mechanical components, the power train, as well as all the electrical and electronic components are housed in submerged containers that must be airtight. IDOM faced significant technical challenges in the design of these containers and their connections to ensure a long useful life under the conditions of low maintenance requirements and exposure to high corrosion.
