This Wave Carpet design has distinct technological advantages:
Due to the fact that the carpet is fully submerged, it is able to survive the strong momentum of stormy seas.
The device poses no visual pollution to the ocean surface and no collision danger to boats and sea life.
High, broadband and omnidirectional absorption efficiency of ocean waves.
The modular design allows the device to scale in width for setting a desired output power capacity.
