The DEXAWAVE converter harnesses wave energy by converting wave power into electrical energy, with the lowest possible environmental impact. The converter is being developed to have a competitive energy production cost compared to other energy sources, such as coal, gas and wind.
DEXAWAVE involved DIS when they needed help analyzing the construction in order to make sure it could handle the large pressure from the sea. DIS then made full scale calculations, simulations and fatigue analysis to verify the construction’s sustainability.
One of the reasons why DEXAWAVE chose DIS as a collaborator was the fact that they had access to a lot of resources and competencies in one location. With the help from DIS, DEXAWAVE has achieved over two years what other companies achieve in five years.
