Benefits of The Smart Power Buoy

The benefits of the ground-breaking design, technology and functionality of the Resen Waves Smart Power Buoy are many and far-reaching for companies of all sizes.

  • Power generation and real-time data transmission via one scalable unit, 24/7 – no conflict between disparate and legacy systems

  • Facilitates the transformation from traditional offshore operations (crewed vessels and ROVs) to green, renewable operations using AUVs and the Smart Power Buoy – reducing costs, carbon emissions & survey times plus increasing safety of teams

  • Operations continue even in harsh, changeable and remote conditions. No issues regarding restrictions due to the Covid pandemic – skilled teams can be safely employed onshore

  • Affordable, cost-effective renewable energy for all companies and budgets

  • Replaces diesel generators and other polluting and unreliable power sources – no refuelling or exchange of batteries required

  • Scalable buoys designed for varying power requirements

  • Unobtrusive and inoffensive operation – as the buoy sits partly submerged in the water the horizon and associated views are uninterrupted!

  • Excellent survivability in all sea conditions due to patented design including low weight, few moving parts, direct mechanical to electric drive plus automatic pre-tensioning

  • Resen Waves numerical model means we accurately predict the power supply that will be required and optimize the power production by the Smart Power Wave Buoy in any wave condition – the customer therefore only pays for what they need.

  • Increases the safety and viability of CCS (Carbon Capture Storage) in the sea due to real-time uninterrupted monitoring for leaks using AUVs and the Smart Power Buoy

Operating autonomous instruments and machinery whether in a coastal, near or offshore location needs a power source and as mentioned, conventional solutions such as diesel generators and batteries can not only damage the environment but are also limited as they require refuelling, recharging, servicing and cleaning plus onsite personnel.

Such projects are expensive in terms of finance and personnel costs due to the need to have crews operating the vessels often in hazardous conditions. However, remote analysis and monitoring of surface or subsea instruments in these projects has not always been regarded as a viable option due to the practice of cutting back on data transmission in order to conserve power. That is until now…
