Title: FLOATING DEVICE COMPRISING AN INTERCHANGEABLE INSERT PASSING THROUGH A FLOAT AND ASSOCIATED ELECTRICAL PRODUCTION SYSTEM
Abstract:
The invention concerns a floating device (1) for cooperating with an insert (2) via a reversible interlocking connection, comprising a float and having a main hole (Lp). In order to propose a floating device adaptable to a very large number of applications, proposing, in particular, an optional multi-step installation, the main hole (Lp) of such a device is arranged to receive said insert (2). Moreover, the floating device (1) comprises reversible attachment means arranged to maintain a relative position of said device (1) along the insert (2). The invention further concerns a floating system (20) comprising a floating device (1) according to the invention and an insert (2) cooperating with said floating device (1) via a reversible interlocking connection, said insert (2) being designed to produce electrical energy (E1) by means of the thermal gradient of the oceans.
