This is the PTO stage 1 project summary report for the Romax Technology Wave Energy Transmission Module project. The aim of this project is to demonstrate a robust, effective Power Take Off (PTO) solution comprising a gearbox and generator which may be applied to a wide range of Wave Energy Converter (WEC) types and deliver a low cost of energy.

The key advantages of this technology are its extremely high transmission efficiency and ability to take advantage of the highly cost-competitive global supply chain which already exists to supply similar products to the wind energy industry.
