| Conversion of Unused Oil Platform into a Wave Farm
Based on Motorwave technology which can be placed offshore, we can imagine projects that are otherwise not feasible.
Areas with very high wave energy levels are far away from land and can not be connected or linked by means of electric cable or pipeline.
One of the projects is to make use of a decommissioned oil drilling platform or a small island and establish a base for hydrogen production and
All energy for the project will be provided by the Motorwave, including electricity
needed on the platform for water electrolysis in order to produce hydrogen and oxygen.
Mechanical energy will be used to compress H2, and to desalinize sea water.
Desalinated water can also be produced for shipment elsewhere. With an unlimited
supply of sea water at 4 degrees Celsius, the liquefaction by using thompson/joule
Transportation to land can be organized with two options.
A) by ships transporting compressed or liquid hydrogen.
Part of the hydrogen/oxygen produced will be used to power
the transport ships (using internal combustion engines).
B) By zeppelin, low altitude flying cargo powered by hydrogen/oxygen.
Hydrogen is used for the filling of the zeppelin and the cargo can be the compressed
or liquid hydrogen. These flying cargo vessels are unmanned and flying only over sea,
so there are minimal security issues.
