Wave Energy Converter System


Weptos is a Danish company, which has developed a world-leading Wave Energy Converter technology and is now bound for scaling towards commercialization. The Weptos technology is protected by 22 international patents, including the Power Take Off system (PTO), ensuring efficient wave power conversion into energy with minimal energy loss. A Weptos system consists of floating rotors that sync with the waves.

Using the PTO, the rotor’s movements are converted into smooth rotation, enabling the utilization of existing generator technology, similar to wind turbines. The technology has achieved revolutionary results with a conversion efficiency of over 60% and a record-low LCoE (Levelized Cost of Energy) of €30/MWh.

This exciting development also leads to growth within the Weptos team, taking place in brand-new surroundings at Port House in Fredericia – an ideal location with a view of the waves.


Much of the work revolves around defining the final design of the world’s most cost-effective wave energy converter. The team is well on its way to achieving groundbreaking results, expected to be announced in the last quarter of 2023.
