Ocean Navitas’ technology is called The Aegir Dynamo. The name is derived from the name for the Norse god of the sea ‘Ægir’ and the definition of a dynamo ‘an electrical generator’. The Aegir Dynamo functions in a unique fashion by generating electrical current from the motion of the prime mover in one phase via a direct mechanical conversion and the use of a bespoke buoyancy vessel.
The shorebased or affixed Aegir Dynamo is designed to service small coastal and island communities, especially those which currently depend on expensive diesel or gas generators as their power source. It operates in a sea state of 300mm or more with an optimum wave height of 1.5 meters to produce 45kW, which can either be connected to the local grid network or fed directly into battery banks, and is sufficient to supply around 65 homes.
Linear prime mover for simulating wave profiles of up to 3 meters wave height at varying periodic frequencies - designed to test marine power take off systems The simulator comprises a computer interface to accept data to allow the simulation of a buoy operating in varying sea states.
