TRL 5/6: System Integration and Technology Laboratory Demonstration
Technology Description The Sea Wave Slot-Cone Generator (SSG) is based on the overtopping principle. It utilizes a total of three reservoirs stacked on top of one other (referred to as a 'multi-stage water turbine') in which the potential energy of the incoming wave will be stored. The water captured in the reservoirs will then run through the multi-stage turbine for highly efficient electricity production.

Mooring Configuration The main focus is on opportunities to build the SSG concept as breakwater struktures. The breakwaterstructure will not require moorings but will be designed and ballasted to stay in position by own weight.
Optimum Marine/Riverline Conditions Harbour build outs extention repairs etc Energetic locations minimum 7 8kW m local wave climate
Technology Dimensions
Technology Nameplate Capacity (MW) Concept implemented in breakwater structures capacity will depend on local wave energy and length of breakwater Example 20kW m wave climate 50m breakwater structure 1MW capacity
Device Testing
Lab Test •Load test of structure performance and optimization test on structure design turbine performance test generator grid connection set up test
