||PCT/MX2013/000090||ZALDÍVAR VELÁZQUES, Carlos Eduardo||ZALDÍVAR VELÁZQUES, Carlos Eduardo|
Pure wave energy or energy converted into kinetic energy in the form of a wave on the coast is received by an artificial reef which has a ramp, on the upper part thereof, suitably designed to raise the maximum volume of sea water to the maximum possible height, depositing it in the channel of the reef as potential energy or altitude energy, and flows through a horizontal channel to land area. Once it arrives at the weir, it falls on the rotor of a generator, producing electricity which is sent to the distribution network. The sea water returns in the form of a river and/or filters through the marine farm, providing said farm with calm, oxygenated water which is safe to be used as a hatchery for breeding sea species.
