Fixed and Safe Co-location with Offshore Wind Turbines
Wenverter's HRSSG (tm) technology
Gas turbine combined cycle (CC) plants' new role is to cover for renewables' intermittencies. However, are they flexible and efficient enough to “fit” this new role?
Existing CC plants consume fossil fuel to heat CC steam turbines for fast-startups; this fuel does not become electricity! Carbon-free solution for fast-startups (flexibility) and fuel economy (efficiency) require disruptive innovation ASAP. Enorasy's patented HRSSG (tm) technology dramatically increases CC plant flexibility and efficiency, while minimizing carbon emissions. It incorporates thermal storage in non-circulating Phase Change Materials (PCMs) and eliminates thermal conductivity barriers from solidified PCM during thermal energy retrieval.

ABOUT WENVERTER Ltd
Wenverter Ltd. is an R&D company with the mission to solve the marine wave energy capture and conversion problem. The name is an abbreviation of the words wave energy converter. The company is currently developing its first product, Wenverter OSWEC (oscillating surge wave energy converter), with support from the University of Edinburgh.
The Wenverter OSWEC device captures wave energy by using a flap and converts it to electricity within the flap. The Wenverter’s Power Take-Off (PTO) is made with non-hydraulic mechanical parts and provides direct rotation to a generator. The PTO does not require the use of any kind of seals. It is entirely enclosed and fully protected from the corrosive sea water throughout the device’s life cycle. The PTO is split in modules which are easier to handle, replace and service.
Wenverter OSWEC's architecture allows for a fixed installation at variable depths. This enables the safe co-location with offshore wind turbines.
