Ocean Harvesting Technologies AB

Ocean Harvesting Technologies AB (OHT) was founded in 2007 to develop a patented mechanical power take-off (PTO) for wave energy conversion comprising a planetary gearbox connected to a gravity accumulator. The technology efficiently converts the highly fluctuating power captured from ocean waves into a smooth speed and torque suitable to a conventional generator. The technology offers increased power output, compliance with grid quality requirements and reduces the need to oversize components.

OHT is a customer driven service and technology provider to wave power device developers, OEMs and other companies in the marine renewables industry. Product development is implemented in an open innovation strategy in co-operation with carefully selected technology suppliers and development partners, research institutes and strategic customers.

The core team at Ocean Harvesting is specialized in systems engineering and integration with focus on its power take-off and power smoothing technology. The team has a wide knowledge of wave energy conversion systems and how the power smoothing technology influence other parts of the system in therms of cost, power capture and efficiency.
