These Water Turbines Capture Waves Power And Turn It Into Electricity

These cross-flow water turbines transform the ocean waves power into electricity.

The offshore technology is developed by Arrecife Systems from Spain, and it simulates the behaviour of a coral reef, which acts as a barrier against waves.



The rotating turbines transform movement into electricity through electric generators. It’s a modular system that can be scaled and built into wind farms.

Arrecife’s technology is custom-built by sizes, the number of turbines and devices with capacities of 75kW to 2MW, enough to power 1000 households.

It can withstand storms and even reposition itself according to the direction of the waves. The prototype is safe for sea wildlife and humans.
