» The Wello approach: sustainable, discreet and non-disruptive.
The world is facing series challenges in its energy production needs. The rapid growth of the global population and industrial needs among other aspects are contributing to this. It has been estimated that the demand for electricity will double in the years to come.
Currently more than 60% of the worlds electricity is produced with fossil fuels. With 75% of the earth’s surface being covered by water, the huge clean, continues energy production potential of wave energy is rapidly increasing in interest.
The Wello Penguin represents a way of producing sustainable, clean energy in harmony with the environment. The Penguin vessel floats on water and captures the kinetic energy of the waves, turning it into electrical power. The vessel is positioned away from the wave breaking zone. The Penguin fleet can consist of anything form one unit upwards, depending on the desired energy production capacity. The Penguins are anchored to sea bottom at a depth of approximately 50 meters. Only 2 meters of each unit is visible above the surface. Instead of fixed structures on the sea bed, the Penguin floats on the surface with only minimal anchoring. The Penguins do not produce any audible or visible disturbance to the nearest shore. The Wello approach to energy production is sustainable, discreet and non-disruptive.
This is what we call pure energy.
At Wello we care for the environment but also for corporate responsibility.
Our business creates jobs as the manufacturing of the Penguin device can be done by most shipyards. Additionally, establishing a wave energy converter site has positive economic impact on local infrastructure and subsequent investments in services. Local installation and deployment brings employment opportunities for local residents and businesses.
