One year after the demonstration of the first functional scale prototype of the Ocean Grazer, the first prototype suitable for wave tanks has been launched.

first wave tank experiments

On Thursday the 25th of June from 13:00 - 17:00 we will host an 'open-house' to inform you all about the ongoing research and progress of the Ocean Grazer project, including a demonstration of the first wave tank experiment.

The Klaas Dijkstra Funds Foundation has decided to provide a financial contribution specifically intended to enhance mechanical systems of test setups. 

The Ocean Grazer has been frequently in the news recently. Some of the recent news articles, which are mostly in Dutch, are listed below.

Researchers of the Ocean Grazer Group have demonstrated the first functional scale prototype of a novel wave energy converter. The Ocean Grazer, invented by project manager drs. W.A. Prins of the Advanced Production Engineering research group, is a novel wave energy collection and storage device, whose core technology is a wave energy converter (WEC) that is adaptable to various wave profiles. This core technology is therefore highly efficient and can offer loss-free energy storage.

For the open day visitors were invited to witness a demonstration of the working functional scale prototype of the pumping system, and were informed about the research performed ...
