Fil-Am aims to build large-scale ocean energy generator
MetadataShow full item record
A Filipino-American mechanical engineer wants to build his first large-scale ocean energy generator and test it in the Philippines. Ramuel Maramara, owner of engineering firm Brimes Industrial in Long Island in New York, successfully designed a small-scale wave energy-generating device called “The Jellyfish.” The Jellyfish was proven to efficiently absorb wave energy and turn it into electricity. This time, Maramara wants to design a large-scale version of The Jellyfish that can generate one megawatt of electricity. Maramara said the Philippines is a great place to test the large-scale version of The Jellyfish because it is an archipelagic state, where big waves along its seashores can be converted into power.
