Ocean Harvesting Technologies secures €300 000 Investment

InfinityWEC is a modular and scalable wave energy conversion system that is capable of capturing and converting wave energy to electricity in a highly effective and cost-efficient manner. Compared to offshore wind power, InfinityWEC is estimated to produce a smooth and predictable power output, 10X more electricity per used sea area with virtually no visual impact from shore.
