Nemos progresses with wave device

The German based company, Nemos has been running its fully automatized 1:5 scale wave power device connected to wind turbine towers at Nissum Bredning, Denmark.

This device untitled “Nemo” which is grid-connected to the Danish site since last year is already producing energy.

The technology developed by Nemos consists in a long floating body connected to the seabed by three ropes which harness wave movements and transmits mechanical energy to a generator.

Nemos also planned to deploy a full-scale Nemo’s wave power device around 2017.
