hybrid POWERBUOY®

Ocean Power Technologies’ hybrid PowerBuoy® is an easily deployable, economical source of reliable offshore power and communications suitable for almost any ocean environment. Applications include surface surveillance, subsea monitoring, subsea power and charging, offshore connectivity and emergency service power for offshore industries including oil and gas, science and research, and communications. 

The hybrid PowerBuoy® stores power for surface and subsea payloads in onboard lithium iron phosphate batteries, primarily charged via solar panel array. An efficient, clean burning and silent nominal 1kW Stirling engine provides backup power, fueled by liquid propane. This combination makes the hybrid PowerBuoy® a low- to zero-carbon power solution.

An optional communications mast added to the topside of the hybrid PowerBuoy® can accommodate OPT surveillance solution payload, which includes radar, cameras, and communications equipment, including Wi-Fi, 4G/5G, and satellite data communications hardware.

The hull design, compact size, and single-point mooring of the hybrid PowerBuoy® can facilitate cost-effective rapid deployment and installation around the world and across very broad sea states. 

With energy generated independent of wave activity, the hybrid PowerBuoy® can deliver power in extreme weather and heavy seas, or low wave environments. In seasonal low sea states, the hybrid PowerBuoy® is an ideal complement to OPT’s PB3 PowerBuoy® wave energy converter.
