Floating Solar Photovoltaic (PV)
The Floating solar photovoltaic, a relatively new concept, is an emerging technology with the potential of rapid growth. This system refers to any kind of solar panels that float on water. The demand for floating solar PV is expanding, especially on islands.Read More
PLOCAN work in a new energy collection device that also desalinate the water.
PLOCAN (The test banc of the Canary Islands Oceanic Platform) is about to implement a device developed by the European consortium, which is trying to solve some of this challenges, including water desalination.Read More
The Blue Growth and the marine life
We all the importance of taking the most potential from the marine and ocean energy sectors. However, it is inevitable to debate whether this growth is going to sacrifice or damage the environment from which it will develop (oceans), as well as it´s species that inhabit it.Read More
COVID-19. THE OPPORTUNITY TO START AGAIN WITH RENEWABLE ENERGIES
It has been almost four months since the Covid-19 appeared around the whole world and, since then, most of the economic sectors seem to have been affected very negatively.
However, despite of the current moment that we are living during this crisis, the renewable energy sector seems to be the only viable way for our economy.Read More
WHAT WOULD OUR LIFE BE LIKE WITHOUT ENERGY?
Imagine how difficult it would be to get up and not have the energy to turn on the light. Imagine how difficult it would be to start the day without coffee because the coffeemaker has no energy to work.Read More
WHAT IS WAVE ENERGY?
Who has not stood before the immensity of the sea and been fascinated? Who has ever wondered about its power and strength?Read More
WATER, THE KEY TO SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
As part of the celebration of World Water Day,it is very important for us to highlight the importance of this element of nature, which is present in everything we see around us.Read More
COMMITMENT TO MOTHER EARTH
The celebration of World Earth Day is a tradition that since 1970 has wanted to highlight the importance of care and respect for the elements that make up and are part of our daily lives.Read More
PLOCAN Joins SEATITAN’S External Industrial Exploitation Board (EIEB)
Through an official statement, PLOCAN, announced its interest in becoming part of the Seatitan project, coordinated by Wedge Global.the importance of care and respect for the elements that make up and are part of our daily lives.Read More

Power Take Off (PTO)
In SEA TITAN case is the heart of the Wave Energy Converter WECs. Its main function is: to transform the mechanical movement of the waves into electrical energy
Lowest point reached by a wave in its displacement cycle
Appear on smooth water when the wind blows, but will die quickly if the wind stops
When wind waves propagate and are not affected any more by local winds are called swells. These are the most energetic waves around the world
Process of lateral transfer of energy on the ridges of the waves. It occurs when the wave height at one point is higher than the adjacent values within the same ridge.
Tidal Power or Tidal Energy, converts the energy obtained from the tides into useful forms of power. Although this renewable is not widely used yet, tidal energy has the potential for future electricity generation.
The European Marine Energy Centre,was established in 2003. More than 20 developers have since tested devices at EMEC.
Wave Energy Converter (WEC)
Marine devices capable of converting wave energy into electricity. There are more than 10 different WEC types
Switched Reluctance Machines (SRM)
The principle of the SRM are that each phase is not activated until the corresponding passive pole is fully aligned, starting from misalignment (motor), or the pasive pole is fully misaligned, starting from aligment (generator)
New configuration and geometry of the of a first generation MLSRM, that aims at achieving high continuous and peak force densities and high efficiencies with application to many wave energy conversion technologies.
Highest point reached by a wave in its movement cycle
A wave directly generated and affected by local wind
This phenomenon occurs when the wave hits a vertical obstacle or barrier, the wave is reflected with very little loss of energy.
