Belga Marine signs new partnership with Resen Waves

Belga Marine has partnered up with Resen Waves to deliver smart power buoys to the Brazilian energy industry.

Ocean waves are a huge, largely untapped energy resource, and the potential for extracting energy from waves is immense.

Using waves as a source of renewable energy offers significant advantages over other methods of energy generation. This is a far more sustainable and reliable source of energy given that waves are abundant and widely available. Moreover, using ocean waves and other renewable energy sources enables us to become less dependent on oil prices.

Resen Waves is a Danish company, originally founded in 2010 under the mission to fight climate change and reduce its customers’ costs by means of the Resen Waves Smart Power Buoy.

The Resen Waves Smart Power Buoy is a floating mechanical device utilizing the wave movement to activate a generator and produce electric power, which turns the center drum back and forth with the wave action. The buoy powers a battery pack or docking station on the seabed through the mooring line. This power can then be fed to AUVs or other instrumentation in the sea. At the same time, the buoy can log data from connected instruments and transmit this in real-time through a fiber optic connection to onshore facilities using satellite, 3G or 4G connections.

The technology can be applied to many different markets. From oil & gas to carbon capture storage (CCS), desalination to monitoring the life in our oceans – the Resen Waves Smart Power Buoy combined with AUVs will transform the way companies operate. By deploying the buoy as the power and data communication source for an AUV, companies can cut survey times by up to 70% and reduce operational costs by over 40% at the same time.

The benefits of the ground-breaking design, technology and functionality of the Resen Waves Smart Power Buoy are many and far-reaching for companies of all sizes. Not only can the Smart Power Buoy play a key role in helping companies move towards net-zero emission goals, but it also increases the efficiencies of company operations, while safeguarding the employees.

Ocean wave energy is not a very explored field in Brazil but considering the size of the Brazilian coastline and its maritime area, the potential for generating ocean wave energy here is undeniable. With this new partnership, UBM helps to bring yet another sustainable solution to the market and to the energy transition, which is already happening in Brazil. As for the oil & gas industry, the benefits of the technology provided by Resen Waves are numerous and will surely innovate offshore operations.”, says Alexandre de Carvalho, Sales & Business Development Manager at Ulstein Belga Marine.
