Title: (EN) Device for the utilisation of wave energy and a method
Abstract: front page image
(EN)

The invention relates to a device for the utilization of wave energy, with an increased efficiency. Thereto, the device according to the invention comprises

    • a Darrieus rotor having at least two Darrieus rotor blades, wherein the Darrieus rotor has a solidity σD, and
    • a Wells rotor having at least two Wells rotor blades, wherein the Wells rotor has a solidity σW,
      wherein
    • the Darrieus rotor and the Wells rotor are rotatable about a common axis of rotation A, and
    • σW is larger than or equal to σD.

The invention also relates to a method for harnessing wave energy.
