Harvesting ocean wave energy to support monitoring systems

 

The demand for accurate, real-time, high-density ocean data to enable the Blue Economy, scientific work, and national security needs, is leading to the need for many more ocean observation and monitoring systems to be deployed worldwide.


These systems are frequently reliant on non-rechargeable batteries, resulting in high maintenance costs and providing limits on available power. This in-turn often imposes limits on achievable sampling rates, lengths of deployment, and data resolution, eliminating many exciting future applications, such as recharging resident autonomous vehicles. Harvesting energy from ocean waves can solve these challenges.

Oscilla Power Inc. (OPI) saw an opportunity to develop
sensor platforms that can harness energy from
the ocean. OPI’s MicroTriton has a class leading efficiency and is adept at capturing energy from waves in low and moderately energetic environments.


MicroTriton will enable a significant quantity of
high-quality, high-density, real-time ocean data,
helping to protect marine and coastal ecosystems,
monitor environmental change and aid maritime
security.
