Carnegie is the owner and developer of the CETO® technology, which captures energy from ocean waves and converts it into electricity.

It use the latest advances in artificial intelligence and electric machines to optimally control the device and generate electricity in the most efficient way possible.

It have a long history in ocean energy with a track record of world leading developments.

CETO Technology

Named after a Greek sea goddess, CETO offers the potential to revolutionise renewable power production globally. CETO harnesses the enormous untapped energy present in our ocean’s waves and converts it into grid-ready electricity. CETO is a unique, fully submerged, point absorber type wave energy technology. A submerged buoy sits a few metres below the surface of the ocean and moves with the ocean’s waves. This orbital motion drives a power take-off (PTO) system that converts this motion into electricity.

CETO Technology Characteristics

The CETO 6 design builds on intellectual property first lodged by Carnegie in 2013, incorporating on-board power generation and multiple moorings and power take-off modules. This associated US patent, granted on 6 November 2017, confirms the additional features as state of the art. These features boost power production and unit efficiency.

  • Converts ocean wave energy into zero-emission electricity
  • Environmentally friendly, has minimal visual impact and attracts marine life
  • Fully-submerged and operates in deep water, away from breaking storm waves and beach-goers
  • Tens of thousands of hours of in-ocean operational testing

CETO Advantages

  1. No Visual Impact – fully submerged
  2. Developed & Proven – over 10 years with onshore, wave tank and tens of thousands of hours of in-ocean testing
  3. Flexible -operates in variety of water depths, swell directions, tides & seafloor conditions
  4. Storm Survivability – fully submerged & extreme wave mitigation system
  5. Security – provides emissions free sustainable energy and water security to countries & islands
  6. Scalable – modular array design
  7. Clean – minimal environmental impact, co-exists with marine life.
  8. Desalination – zero-emission freshwater co-production allows pseudo energy storage
