Title (EN) SEGMENTED CONCRETE HULL FOR WAVE ENERGY CONVERTERS AND METHOD OF CONSTRUCTING
(FR) COQUE EN BÉTON SEGMENTÉE POUR CONVERTISSEURS D'ÉNERGIE HOULOMOTRICE ET PROCÉDÉ DE CONSTRUCTION
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A wave energy converter (10) is capable of floating on a body of water (BW), moving in response to waves (W) occurring in the body of water (BW), and includes a hull (12) connected to a heave plate (14). The wave energy converter (10) is characterized in that the hull (12) is formed from reinforced concrete, a plurality of connecting tendons (16) extend between the hull (12) and the heave plate (14), and a power take off (66) is attached to each connecting tendon (16).
(FR)L'invention concerne un convertisseur d'énergie houlomotrice (10) pouvant flotter sur un plan d'eau (BW), se déplaçant en réaction à des vagues (W) se produisant dans le plan d'eau (BW), et comprenant une coque (12) reliée à une plaque anti-pilonnement (14). Le convertisseur d'énergie houlomotrice (10) est caractérisé en ce que la coque (12) est formée à partir de béton armé, d'une pluralité d'armatures de précontrainte de liaison (16) s'étendent entre la coque (12) et la plaque anti-pilonnement (14), et une prise de puissance (66) est fixée à chaque armature de liaison (16).
