Wave Daedalus – Wave Energy Converter

Wave power is the way forward

At Eco Wave Dynamis, we face the sea not with fear, but with utmost respect. This is why we dared and managed to create an innovative mechanism that converts wave power into pure electrical power.


This pioneering mechanism has been designed to be more efficient in comparison with other sea wave power systems, and to have the lowest possible construction cost. It has been created after a long period of continuous research, that was conducted in real sea conditions and not in test tanks with artificial waves, where we sought to gain a deep understanding of the vast power potential of the waves.


We named our system “Daedalus”, inspired by the ingenuity of this mythical inventor and polymath.

How does the system convert wave power into electricity?

Its technology is based on the operating principle of the free gyroscope, namely on the operation of a gyroscope rotor with freedom of rotation of its three axes. By means of a rugged lever, the floater is connected to the gyroscopic mechanism, which converts the free motion of the floater into rotational motion.

The 5 main advantages of the system

The Eco Wave Dynamis system has significant advantages that make it especially innovative:

The floater follows whichever direction the wave has, allowing the system to utilize both the potential energy and the kinetic energy of the wave in the maximum degree possible. This is contrary to existing systems which only perform a limited rising and diving motion that does not allow maximum utilization of the total energy of the wave.

It is the only wave power converter in the world that measures the wave height with centimeter precision – by implementing the ancient Greek Pythagorean Theorem. And this is how we are able to understand and harness the vast and untamed energy potential of the waves.

The construction design of the system takes into account the hydrostatic forces, as well as the bending moments and sears forces. This is why we can guarantee that it will function properly even in the most adverse weather conditions.

Thanks to its simplicity, the system is especially ergonomic and reliable, in order to be a certain source of profit for investors.

The floater has a bulbous shape, in order to absorb and minimize the impact forces from the waves.

The Ultimate source of Infinite Energy

Daedalus Wave Power

Consists of a small system that converts wave energy into electricity and can be placed on any coastline and meet the “green” electricity needs of seaside homes, hotels, and other seaside establishments on one hand or that can be scaled up to larger grid connected installations.

Daedalus technology is based on the operating principle of the free gyroscope. Using a lever, a floater is connected to the gyroscopic mechanism, which converts the free motion of the floater into rotational motion. This solution allows EWD to harvest energy from waves independent of their direction.

Our aim is to provide a small, modular system for small seaside power demand that can be scaled up if required. Our clients will enjoy a clean, cheap and endless source of energy.

Our solution was designed having in mind high generating efficiency and low manufacturing costs.

High product differentiation:

The concept of using a gyroscope as an omnidirectional wave generator system to achieve maximum possible efficiency.

We also combine the vision of the small, easy to build and deploy power generators with the scalability of large generator parks, instead of most of the existing projects based in huge costly structures.

This makes Daedalus an optimistic new approach for the industry.


 Low investments:

Most parts of the investments have already been done over the last 10 years. They consist of the consultancy engineering time, calculations, building a small scale prototype and a big scale prototype ready to install in Ikaria, Greece.

EWD values the effort put into achieving our results around 10.000.000€ mark.


Advantages of the Daedalus mechanism:


  • It’s deployment can be scaled according to the energy needs of the customer and can meet power requirements from 0.5 kW to 100 kW or more (subject to conditions and deployment area).
  • Simple design with low maintenance requirements.
  • Guaranteed smooth operation, even in the most adverse weather conditions.
  • Ongoing support from EWD
  • Long service life.
  • Easy removal from the sea if necessary (maintenance, storage when not in use).


Possible applications of “Daedalus”


  • For seaside residences with low or zero carbon footprint aspiration, for which demand from the tourism and real estate markets is expected to increase in the coming years.
  • Meeting part of the electricity needs of coastal hotels or campsites
  • Electric lighting in marinas or coastal roads
  • Operation of pumps to replenish water in a swimming pool or for continuous water supply to fish farms
  • It can contribute creating sustainable stations for electric cars
  • Energy autonomy of sea bouys. Reducing or replacing the costly batteries that are used today
  • Water desalination
  • Renewable energy source for the electricity grid
  • Larger deployments will increase protection against costal erosion in wave travel direction.
  • Energy autonomy of equipment for recording and transmitting marine scientific data in low-sun areas
