1.Water scarcity; 2. power shortages or expensive power; 3. Cost of pre-filtration and delivery of clean seawater to the coast for industrial use such as seawater desalination, salt recovery and land-based aquaculture; 4. Cost of cooling industrial applications and controlled agricultural processes (growth cycles, office/hotel space cooling, general industrial cooling applications). 5. Cost of fouling in intake pipes (aquaculture, desalination etc.).
The WEROP uses wave energy directly to supply pre-filtered high pressure seawater to an industrial process such as a Reverse Osmosis system, producing fresh water as a primary product and electricity and salt as by-products. The high pressure delivery is the most efficient way to supply wave energy. It also prevents bio-fouling in the pipeline. The system also forms a reef, and the system reduces incident wave energy, thus reducing coastal erosion. All this and more with zero electricity usage.
