Dartmouth Wave Energy Ltd
DWE has designed and patented a novel wave energy device. Essentially a low cost sea-pump, the unit, or units, will deliver pressured seawater to land for the production of energy or de-salination. The product can also be used for marine-agri applications (fish farms etc.)
The founders have invested £300,000 in the company to date and carried out a proof of concept trial that clearly demonstrated its potential. DWE uniqueness lies in its low manufacturing cost, easy deploy-ability and low maintenance requirements. The solution can also incorporate energy storage in the form of on-land reservoirs. The company is currently in final negotiations to secure investment to develop a robust technical file with a view to installing the pre-production prototype at the Falmouth Wave Test (FAB) facility.
