Why Wave Energy

A constant surge of wave flow contains a hidden potential of 3 terawatts of energy, which is higher than the total world’s annual energy demand. Moreover, wave energy, said to have a higher density index by comparison with that of solar or wind, is posed to be recognized as a more economical and stable source of electricity.

How It Works

INWave, INGINE’s Wave Energy Converter (WEC) technology, is an innovative method of generating power using the whole range of wave movements, enabling its application even in shallow waters 
where conventional/existing technologies otherwise have difficulties.

Line-Up

INWave Onshore, INIGNE’s first WEC product model, can be easily installed
on land (e.g., breakwater barriers etc.), thereby ensuring durability, safety and affordability.  
In light of this, a small-scale power generation and distribution (micro-grid) for/on remote islands and coastal areas, 
otherwise inaccessible to existing technologies, will be the first candidate.

 High Stability and Scalability 

Proof of Concept

Based on the results of five year long research and development, in late 2015, the INGINE commissioned a demonstration plant, which is connected to the local grid.
The plant is an operational prototype used for the purpose of demonstration and proof of mechanical concept.

ABOUT

2016

Year Established

IWES (INGINE Wave Energy Systems ltd) was established on September 2016 in Scotland (at Forss energy park in Caithness).


Main product is onshore-type Wave Energy Converter (WEC) called INWave which is suitable for shoreline and remote islands. IWES’s business goal is to offer the world’s first affordable wave energy converter, with a Simple, Scalable & Sustainable technology. The technology has been proven feasible already at prototype demonstration level in a South Korean coast, Jeju island since 2015 by INGINE Inc, the parent company of IWES. IWES joined the GEP Programme in 2017 while IWES secured Seal of Excellence award by European Commission, scoring high-quality innovative ocean energy systems potentially to deploy across all over the Atlantic Ocean coasts.

Specialisms:
 

IWES’ INWave technology provides an innovative solution of generating power which, compared with other offshore-based, capital-intensive and time-consuming wave projects, provides the unique approach of: (i) deploying power generation device and related electric equipment onshore, (ii) harvesting wave energy from the shallow nearshore water, and (iii) using the whole range of wave movements.
 

It can be easily installed on land (e.g., breakwater barriers etc.), thereby ensuring durability, safety and affordability. This reduces costs and time, enabling sustainable supply for the smaller scale local market needs. With the proper technological development and project deployment, for your reference, Wave energy is the type of ocean energy with the highest deployment potential in EU waters (30 times higher than Tidal), whose estimated maximum potential in the EU-27 is up to 16 GW by 2030.

The expected outcome is that INWave technology will achieve 100 MW of installed capacity in 6 years, which will produce 342 TWh (= 100 MW x 8400 h/yr x Capacity factor 40.7%) of electricity every year, then increasing up to 226 MW in 11 years’ time. This is 2% of 16 GW, the European Wave Energy estimated potential market size by 2030. In the longer term, IWES ambition is to deploy totally 5 GW throughout the world by 2050, starting from Scottish isles to the Atlantic Ocean coasts of Europe and Africa.

INGINE flexes muscles to expand wave-power biz in Europe, Africa 

January 21, 2020

INGINE has formed a business partnership with the Moroccan Agency for Sustainable Energy (MASEN) on wave-power generation. 

Lee Sung-won, head of INGINE's London office ― registered as INGINE Wave Energy Systems Ltd ― and his MASEN counterpart Mustapha Bakkoury struck the deal on Jan. 21 at the U.K.-Morocco Business Dialogue in London. 

INGINE believes the deal will help expand its wave-power generation business in Europe and Africa. 

Among nearly 200 companies invited, INGINE was the only eco-friendly power generation company that formally clinched a deal with MASEN during the event, which the U.K government hosted to bolster its economy and international trade before Brexit. 

MASEN is one of the biggest state-run companies in Morocco, operating various eco-friendly power generation projects. 

Earlier, INGINE attracted a 2.5 billion won ($2.14 million) investment from SK Innovation that will help accelerate the progress of its wave-power generation projects in Vietnam, Canada and France.
