2010 (English)Patent (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
The invention relates to a wave-power unit for the production of electric power. It comprises a floating body arranged for floating on the sea and an electric linear generator having a stator and a translator reciprocating along a center axis. The stator is arranged to be anchored in the bed of the sea and the translator is connected tothe floating body by connection means. According to the invention the generator is enclosed in a watertight encapsulation having an upper end wall with an opening through which the connection means extends. The opening has a seal that seals against the connection means. The seal is flexibly mounted. The invention also relates to the use of the wave-power unit and to a method for producing electric power.
