The Powerbuoy from Ocean Power Technologies (OPT) has a scalable onboard battery system that can act as an offshore uninterruptible power supply (UPS) providing continuous power output. It can be used as a stand-alone charging station and communications platform that can enable the long-term remote operation of autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) used in marine environmental monitoring and offshore asset inspection.
The system comes in two power output ranges, 3 kW and 15 kW. For more information, visit www.oceanpowertechnologies.com.
