Power Buoy
Power Buoy can act as an Uninterruptable Power Supply (UPS) which constantly recharges itself by harvesting energy from the waves. It is ocean-deployed, moored and floats over the point of use and can operate in any ocean depth over 20 meters and up to 3,000 meters.

The Power Buoy supplies power continuously to on-board payloads or equipment located on the seabed while also providing real time data transfer and communication to remote shore facilities.

The Power Buoy is sized and designed to store sufficient electric energy to provide reliable "ride through" power in extended periods of flat-calm seas.

The conversion of wave energy into electric power is carried out through a direct drive generator that continuously charges an on-board battery pack (Energy Storage System).
Offshore oil and gas exploration has seen a tremendous growth in the recent years. Maritime energy exploration activities have seen a considerable growth in the last two decades with offshore operations migrating farther away from the shorelines into deeper waters.

Power Buoy renewable ocean-wave based electric power generation technology will offer the Oil & Gas (O&G) market potential new solutions that could drive down project Operational Costs (OPEX) & Capital Costs (CAPEX) helping to make current fields that offer low commercial returns more attractive for development.
The Power Buoy® provides a reliable and sustainable source of remote power, while at the same time providing a stable communications platform to enable expansion of existing networks, or development of new networks.

The Power Buoy® can generate the remote power that is required to operate the receivers and transmission equipment which make up the communications networks.

The PowerBuoy® also provides a robust platform to mount communications equipment where there is no existing infrastructure.
Maritime surveillance, domain awareness, and shoreline border security represent a daunting challenge considering the vast areas to be monitored, weather related access limitations and the considerable amount of manpower required.

Hence, technologies and solutions that would reduce manpower needs, increase unattended surveillance sensors (radars, sonars, and such) and monitoring technology deployment and sustained in-ocean operation, all while providing real time communication, processing and data transmission capabilities, are critical.
