Harnessing the power of the sea

Leveraging our proven solutions

Our cutting-edge technology opens up new opportunities to harness the large amounts of energy available from wave and tidal resources, and helps to create commercially-viable solutions. We are leveraging our proven solutions in multi-megawatt wind power generation to increase annual energy production of ocean energy devices and minimize their total life cycle costs.

Permanent magnet performance

Our permanent magnet (PM) generator and frequency converter packages are designed for best overall system efficiency and highest-level reliability. They have an extremely high average availability in all operating conditions and deliver superior efficiency over the entire speed range.

All of our solutions are designed for smooth operation in environmentally challenging conditions and feature a highly serviceable design. PM generator technology eliminates the use of wearing parts, which ensures fewer failures and significantly reduces the need for maintenance.

Permanent magnet generators

Thanks to improved density, a permanent magnet generator (PMG) is compact and lightweight, which leads to greater flexibility with limited space restrictions typically required in tidal and wave applications. The Switch PMGs provide excellent availability and highest efficiency also in partial loads. When combined with our full-power converters, The Switch PMGs meet the latest power quality and grid compatibility requirements.

Full-power converters

The Switch full-power converters have been designed specifically for demanding power applications. They are optimized to work with a wide range of PMG concepts. Each converter series is built to best match specific wave or tidal conditions and applications.
