Abstract [en]

Wave power could give a significant contribution to a

future sustainable energy system if the Levelized Cost Of Energy

can be reduced to a competitive level. Winch-based point

absorbers could potentially accomplish this if a key component –

a low-cost, durable and efficient winch that can deal with high

loads – can be developed. In this article the possibilities of winchbased

point absorbers and the challenges that need to be

overcome are described. Further, the possibilities to design such

winches are explored and several different design approaches are

evaluated and compared. At present, we believe that such a

winch solution can be found although more research is needed to

develop a full concept, and the most promising solutions so far

involve inverted tooth chains, flat UHMwPE fiber (Dyneema)

bands and flat carbon fibre structures.
