CCell is a system that use wave energy to provide Beach Nourishment, Tourist Attractions and Renewable Energy.

Our mission is to protect beaches by growing beautiful coral reefs using 100% renewable energy. CCell’s natural solution, with multiple benefits, will transform the traditional coastal protection industry. We have worked tirelessly to engineer a beautifully simple system that works with nature. Creating a long-term solution, which protects coasts from erosion while enhancing marine ecosystems.

Offer CCell-Wave powered artificial reef creation

Description
Wave-powered artificial coral reefs, which protect coasts, enhance ecosystems and promote tourism.

At CCell we use the energy in ocean waves to grow artificial coral reefs through a process of underwater electrolysis. These reefs, which grow up to 5 times faster than in nature, provide long-term coastal protection for beach-front hotels and private properties, while enhancing marine ecosystems and promoting dive tourism. Our novel wave energy technology, "CCell", moves with ocean waves to produce electricity. A portion of this electricity is used locally to grow the artificial coral reefs from natural minerals in the seawater, which crystallize around a steel structure to form calcium carbonate rock. In areas with larger waves, any excess energy from the system can be transported back to shore to power microgrids in coastal communities (e.g. West Africa). We are currently working on a full-scale demonstrator in Puerto Morelos, Mexico.
