Penguin’s competitive advantage

The rotational movement of a Penguin device is derived directly from wave motion, and it's captured by the hull shape, instead of a mechanism. The Penguin has no hydraulics or joints, and all moving components never come into contact with sea water.

Off the shelf components

The device can be manufactured by any shipyard.

Towed to site

The Penguin requires no complicated installation on site, as it just needs connection to moorings and the electrical grid.

High efficiency

The device features direct conversion – waves become electricity that goes straight into the grid.

Easy to operate and service

All Penguins are connected for constant monitoring and can be operated remotely.

Proven durability

The Penguin has been extensively tested in harsh sea conditions, and can resist waves as high as 18 meters.


A Technology Masterpiece

The asymmetrical shape of the Wello Penguin’s hull creates a gyrating motion which pushes the rotating mass inside the device with each passing wave. The converter, a superb solution for capturing kinetic energy, turns it into electrical power, immediately transferred to the grid by a sub-sea cable. This direct power train "from wave to electricity" makes the Penguin a more capable system than those offered by other developers.

Penguins units, only partially visible above water, produce no audible disturbance and float outside the wave-breaking zone in perfect harmony with the environment.

What's best, all devices are securely fixed to the sea bed through a simple mooring system and are installable by any regular workboat.
