Executive Summary:Sea Wave Electric Power Supply Complex – SWEPSC – is a device/plant for conversation of mechanical energy of the sea/ocean waves into electric energy on an output of generator. The SWEPSC is placing onto water’s surface as floating plant which is anchored in the coastline aqua-area (150-300m from coast). Inside of a ponton construction there is a special device including gyroscope to move a crank arm and turn a generator. Electric current from the electric generator is being transferred to customer/user by underwater cable on coast or vessel.The SWEPSC is a fully ‘ecological clean’ plant which is not using at itself composition any toxic elements and components putting to pollution of environment and around aqua-area. As a very important additional function the SWEPSC damps onto itself the waves and thus particularly preserve a coastline from erosion.
