SDE Sea Waves Power Plant
SDE Sea Wave Power Plant is a type of renewable energy power plant utilizing sea wave energy for the production of electricity. The unique technology of S.D.E can generate electricity without pollution and with low cost of kw/h production.
The device is made of buoys which are placed on a breakwater, or on some other sea based structure, which create a vertical motion, according to the frequency of the sea wave. The buoys' movement presses on a hydraulic liquid, which is regulated by systems that convert the energy into circular systems. These systems operate an electricity generator and the process culminates in electricity production. The system's innovation is based on its self-correcting mechanism whereby, should a large wave overwhelm the buoy, it would flip over and then "wait" for a lower tide to flip back. The system's high survivability capability is based on the fact that only 10% of its components are submerged in sea water.
Every country knows that a shortage in electricity stops their development. Most of the developing countries do not have the means and knowledge to solve their energy problem which is huge problem, and developed countries deals with the soaring prices of electricity and extremely high consumption rates. The consumption rate of electricity is soaring and SDE have the knowledge to provide the answer for this situation, with SDE innovate green energy technology we can decrease the price of electricity in every country that will adopt our sea waves power plants and produce green electricity which also decrease the dependence in oil, coal and other contaminants.
The device is developed by Israeli company S.D.E. Energy LTD. S.D.E. has built and tested twelve different models of its system, culminating with a full-scale model that operated and tested in Jaffa Port located in Israel and produced 40 kW for a period of a year.
