Identification

WaveGem® is a mid-size marine platform that produces its own energy from waves and from the sun

The electricity produced on offshore off-grid activities and for small islands is one of the most polluting ways to produce power. This technology replaces diesel-generators by a hybrid wave + solar solution. Already at sea, WAVEGEM is a reliable solution offering a 24/7 electricity availability at a competitive cost compared to fossil fuel or other renewable energies. GEPS Techno’s technology has multiple benefits: it has developed from low power to mid-power range platforms, so this technology is fully and easily scalable as proven; it has generated turnover thanks to its low power platforms; it is autonomous, reliable, safe, robust, highly competitive, easily built and deployable at any depth and customisable according to the customers’ needs.
