SEA-TITAN - Surging Wave Energy Absorption through increasing thrust and efficiency

SEA-TITAN is pleased to announce the project’s workshop that will take place at ETWEC 2019, in Napoli, Italy. We invite you to join our workshop on the 4th of September 2019, EWTEC 2019, at the Agave room, from 17h30 to 19h30.


Registration is free, however mandatory due to limited seats.

SEA-TITAN, a European Commission H2020 Programme funded project, aims at making a step change in the wave energy sector by designing, building, testing and validating a crosscutting and innovative Direct Drive Power Take-Off solution to be used with multiple types of wave energy converter.

The objective is to develop an optimized crosscutting power takeoff with application to multiple systems through collaboration with multiple wave energy developers and industrial partners with a strong track record on technology.
Aleix Arenas, Project Manager of Sea-Titan says:
“One of the biggest challenges wave energy is facing is the apparent lack of consensus between different technologies at different levels: moorings, control systems, energy capture strategies or PTO typology. In SEA-TITAN we have the clear objective for designing and testing a new crosscutting PTO usable by all of the wave energy technologies that want to take advantage of it. Thus, we are working with renowned international experts in the sector: technology developers, industry, research laboratories and standardization organism. If you are attending EWTEC2019 please join our workshop to know more about our project and discuss first-hand with the members of the consortium.”

The SEA-TITAN consortium brings together 11 partners from 7 European countries: Belgium, France, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and UK. It gathers eight companies (WEDGE, CORPOWER, CENTIPOD, HYDROCAP, OCEM, COLUMBUS, ENGIE, EDP CNET) and three non-profit organizations with focus on applied research and development (CIEMAT, WAVEC, UNE).
