Maritime force becomes electricity option

Brazil has already invested as an alternative in energy that comes from winds and sunlight, and is now developing a technique that produces electricity through the waves of the sea. The expectation is that this technology mature in studies and evolution of goals.

To produce this energy coming from the sea there is a unit brazil in Pecém, 60 km from the capital of Ceará, Fortaleza, composed of two rods, each with approximately 10 meters, attached to a kind of arms responsible for “surfing” the waves.

The equipment works as follows: with the movements of the waves, the canes/rods float, causing the movement of the arms mechanics, which automatically trigger a pump that pressurizes fresh water and stores in an accumulator connected to a hyperbaric chamber and rotates a turbine in the generator that creates electricity.

The technology is present in about 12 countries: Canada, China, United Kingdom, Denmark, Australia, Portugal, Norway, United States, South Korea, Japan, France and Brazil. This project must be installed in the state of Rio de Janeiro. Electricity is expected to be produced by this new method and has market-relevant capacity.

For this method to continue, it is necessary that the country invest in technological research so that studies can move forward and provide the Brazil has a great growth in the sustainable energy sector. It’s more of a way power without damaging the environment.
