In this project, Oscilla Power will optimise and demonstrate its high reliability, variable damping linear drivetrain concept.

This PTO combines a linear hydraulic “gearbox” with either a conventional or an advanced linear generator. Designed for use in Oscilla Power's Triton(TM) wave energy converter, but applicable to a wide range of other device types, the linear drivetrain will enable high energy capture and low maintenance costs, allowing the industry to achieve its goals of sub £150/MWh levelised cost of electricity.
