Our autonomous hybrid platforms at sea

From small to medium power

Application resulting from our IHES research program, the WAVEGEM® medium power autonomous platform generates its electricity from the innovative wave technology developed by GEPS Techno as the main source and photovoltaic solar panels as an additional source.

To meet a maximum of applications but also support our customers in their changing needs, the platform is modular and accommodates energy storage and embedded applications or exports the energy produced to external submarine or surface consumers.

Mid-power WAVEGEM® was created thanks to the commercially successful low-power platform WAVEPEARL®.
