Twin Ocean Power is a research and development company whose focus is renewable, non polluting and eco friendly electrical power generator. The genesis of the company is the development of a newly patented reusable wave powered energy production technology. This technology converts the unlimited and continuous dynamic power of wave motion in our oceans to electricity. The Twin Ocean Power’s patented device does not require any retrofit necessary for fuel of carbon emission, as carbon emission is one of the most toxic pollutants to our fragile atmosphere. The Wave Powered Electric Generator System (WPEGS) device is an independent and free-floating device on the water surface. It is designed to capture the maximum potential of the water motion and converts this rotational motion into electricity directly via an electric generator without using hydraulics. The manufacturing and operations of WPEGS devices is expected to be the competitively inexpensive comparing to any other existing conventional and alternative energies.
