Saipem and Wello OY have signed a MoU to optimize WEC Penguin technology, one of the most promising among the new systems for the production of energy from marine waves. The objective of the agreement is the development of future initiatives in the sector. Wello OY is the producer of WEC Penguin technology, an innovative technology that enables a floating hull to transform the motion of ocean waves into energy through a rotator directly connected to a generator. Leveraging its long experience in the execution of offshore projects in harsh environments and in the field of naval engineering, Saipem will support Wello OY to optimize the installation procedure and operability of the WEC Penguin technology. This synergy will make it possible to obtain a competitive advantage with which to seize the commercial opportunities offered by the sector.

At the same time, in order to provide its clients with new and efficient solutions, Saipem is investigating further applications of this same technology to the traditional infrastructures of the Oil&Gas market. These include offshore platforms, with the aim of improving both their energy efficiency and reducing their environmental impact for an increasingly sustainable production of energy.
