The company’s motive behind the move is to internationalise its ocean hybrid platform as a complete off-grid energy solution to provide renewable energy to people living near coasts across the globe.

The Bavarian manufacturer claimed that after many years of research and development (R&D) of a patented floating wave energy system, it has developed an extremely robust, modular yet affordable maritime structure to generate renewable energy from solar photovoltaic (PV), wind and waves.

Commenting on the development, Dr. Philipp Sinn, CEO of SINN Power, said that “modularity has been a key aspect since we started developing maritime technologies which allow flexibility and a wide variety of applications. The floating platform can supply renewable energy to island resorts in the Caribbean and contribute to the worldwide implementation of offshore wind farms.”

He further added that “SINN Power is the first to offer a customizable energy solution using waves, small wind and PV according to climatic conditions of any location and at competitive prices compared to other proven technologies.”

The company also emphasized that its structure withstands waves up to 6 meters high. Also, it’s floating structure provides regions that are affected by harsh maritime environment access to renewable energy and ocean energy solutions.

Since 2015, the clean energy solutions provider company is developing and building innovative wave energy systems. Currently, it’s product portfolio includes – self-developed high-tech generators, power electronic components and energy storage for wave energy systems and other renewable energy systems.
