SINN Power is the first to offer a customisable energy solution using waves, small wind and solar photovoltaics
Spotted: Starting this summer, German company SINN Power will offer solar panel manufacturers the opportunity to test their ocean hybrid power generation modules on a floating platform in Iraklio, Greece.
SINN Power is the first to offer a customisable energy solution using waves, small wind and solar photovoltaics. The goal is to internationalise SINN Power’s platform as a complete off-grid energy solution, to provide people living near coastlines across the world with renewable energy.
Designed to harvest energy from waves between 2 m (6.5 ft) up to 6 m (19.6 ft) in height, the platform itself doesn’t move much at all, thanks to a series of floats that move up and down in response to wave activity. Six kWp wind turbines are placed at each junction point and the entire top surface can be covered with solar panels, adding up to 20 kW to the final output of the unit.
SINN Power is pitching the modules as a renewable power option for island resorts, particularly in the Caribbean.
