EPF Energy - Wave

Case history

OBREC Project

OBREC Project

EPF has realized a hydropower plant with low head inside the dam innovative OBREC (Overtopping Breakwater for the Energy Conversion).

The result has been made possible thanks to the synergy between the University of Campania and the advanced know-how of EPF in renewable energies.

The innovative marine dam was realized in 2015 near the port of Naples and represents today one of the most advanced technologies of the field of the Wave Energy.

The experimental campaign started successfully: a year of data collection will provide a characterization of the potential of this technology.
