CCell-Wave powered artificial reef creation
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.
