Product / Service
ECOMar is an energy conversion system based upon sea waves and applicable to any type of dam and backdrop. ECOMar consists of a modular system to produce electricity from wave motion, compatible with large and small breakwaters and suitable for any type of seabed. It integrates supervision system, software applications and a data acquisition system for the recording of all monitored parameters.
Furthermore, ECOMar implements a cyber security policy with respect to all the communication links for data transmission and command & control operations.
It is supplied by power obtained from “alternative and renewable energies” in addition to that provided in ports and harbors. It fully complies with Europe 2020’s primary objective which involves reducing greenhouse gases and C02 emissions, increasing energy efficiency and responding to the guidelines for Energy Sustainability.
Kuma Energy srl (KE) has developed a wave energy converter (ECOMar) compatible with large and small breakwater and all different types of seabed.
ECOMar allows ports and marinas to ensure the access to renewables in line with Europe 2020 targets of greenhouse gases reduction, energy efficiency improvement. ECOMar is also in line with Sustainable Energy guidelines in BRICS and OCSE protocol. KE is part of Pelagos Cluster.
The goal is to create a performance system that is at the same time ‘controlled’ from a safety point of view, remotely monitored through the most effective remote control systems, data communication systems, the buoy cyber security and the communication of these with the land for data provision and remote maintenance. The goal is to design and develop an Internet of Things (IoT) system to demonstrate the feasibility of advanced applications based on smart buoys. The system will be developed in a modular way, to services, in order to allow the implementation of various types of applications, even by third parties, using the features offered by the smart buoys.
KE aims to create customizable systems for sites with different wave characteristics, correlating the energy contribution of the waves, based on data provided by observational systems made available by scientific consultants, with the results of accumulateci electricity and, consequently, optimize the various components of the system. (WONDERTECH – INFOPORTO). KE has designed and equipped the ECOMar project with an innovative auxiliary power supply system.
