The KymoGen Wave Energy Generator is a source of clean, renewable power that will change the world of green energy.
The Kymogen, is a platform that will float offshore, tethered to a mooring. When a wave approaches, the platform will rise, pulling on the mooring tether. As the wave passes, the platform resets to its original position for the next wave. The mooring tether is attached to a drive system inside of the KymoGen. When the mooring tether is pulled, it spins a flywheel, storing the energy. This energy can then be transferred to an on-shore storage system.
Size: 8’L x 8’W x 18”H
Weight: 800 Lbs. (est.)
Energy output: 2 hp in 1 foot waves / 8 hp in 4 foot waves (Much larger Kymogens can be built to increase power output)
Estimated average output per day: 25 to 100 kilowatt hours
Shell construction: High Strength Marine Composites
Interior frame construction: Corrosion resistant tube frame
Flywheel material: High strength composite
Generator Motor: Brushless D/C
Generates energy from waves
Flywheel energy storage technology allows the KymoGen to output a consistent level of power between waves.
Composite construction ensures longevity and reliability in the harshest of marine environments
Corrosion resistant components to increase life cycle and lower maintenance
Highly portable. Its size allows it to be transported easily compared to other sources of renewable energy
Cost effective. The simplicity of the system makes it less expensive to produce, giving a higher return on investment.
Made with readily available materials used and proven in the marine industry.
Highly upgradable. The interior of the KymoGen has plenty of room for additional sensors, and other electronics.
The KymoGen can be equipped with additional solar arrays or wind turbines to further increase its energy footprint.
Easy setup. attach the KymoGen to a mooring of suitable size and it is ready to generate power.
Zero carbon emissions
Small footprint. Compared to other sources of renewable energy, The KymoGen takes up a much smaller footprint, and its low profile preserves sight lines..
The KymoGen will change the world by creating clean, renewable energy from our oceans waves. Marine composite construction will ensure a long life cycle with as little maintenance as possible. The portability of the KymoGen makes it easy to deploy in any part of the world, and can fit into any location. Its low profile makes for unobstructed views, and can be easily customized to fit in with its surroundings. By using readily available materials, we are able to make the KymoGen cost effective, compared to the highly specialized parts and materials needed for other forms of renewable energy. This also makes repairs and servicing the unit much more economical. This will allow us to scale up production drastically to meet the demands go the growth of renewable energy. The KymoGen is a clean energy technology. The KymoGen is an ideal platform for additional solar arrays or wind turbines, vastly increasing the energy output per installation. Its small footprint will have very little impact to the marine environment. Its moving components are housed internally, making the danger of harming marine wildlife non existent. This technology can be deployed quickly, efficiently, and wherever it is needed. As this technology is adopted, much larger platforms generating much more power can be created using similar technology.
