Technology Profile
Primary Organization Ocean Navitas

Technology Description The Aegir Dynamo functions in a unique fashion by generating electrical current from the motion of the prime mover in one phase via a direct mechanical conversion and the use of a bespoke buoyancy vessel Aegir Dynamo is housed in a sealed central column which remains in a relatively stationary position due to ballast and the moored reactor plate at its base The Buoyancy float moves up and down due to its reaction to the change in water level and the effect of gravity The motion of the buoyancy float is transferred to the Aegir Dynamo by a shaft

Mooring Configuration Gravity base with tension leg platform
