MANTA

A Small Scale Wave Energy Converter For Remote Offshore Local Grid Installations.

MANTA

MANTA is a wave energy converter specifically designed for remote grid installations, which includes offshore fish farms and remote coastal communities. In all cases, MANTA charges battery banks, which operators can use to power a variety of applications, including computers, lights, communication systems, sensors, and desalination units.

Survivability is at the heart of MANTA, and as such, automatic load shedding is built into the operating principle. The ability to dissipate load, while continuing to generate power, ensures that the system can continue to reliably power connected applications, in extreme wave scenarios.
