Press Release
Friday, May 25, 2012

Israeli company, Eco Wave Power, has opened a medium-scale wave energy generation system in the Black Sea

Eco Wave Power (EWP) has recently installed a medium-scale wave energy power plant in the Black Sea. The installation of EWP's system, took place in recognition of the international 'Mother Earth Day,' celebrated in more than 175 countries every year.

The Black Sea provided real-life conditions necessary for the testing of EWP's wave energy devices under uncontrolled wave heights and wave periods.

The next phase of EWP will be to move the medium-scale power plant to a different coastal structure, in order to show potential clients that EWP's wave energy generation system can be easily connected to almost any ocean structure.  After this, EWP will build its first commercial scale Sea Wave Power Plant, and reveal the construction and production prices, this will be cheaper than any other renewable or traditional energy generation system.

David Leb, founder of the company, stated that "Eco Wave Power is aware of the impact that pollution has on the world. According to a Cornell study, about 40 percent of deaths worldwide are caused by water, air and soil pollution. Such environmental degradation, coupled with the growth in world population, are major causes behind the rapid increase in human diseases. Both factors contribute to the malnourishment and disease susceptibility of 3.7 billion people. EWP wants to prove that there is another way for energy generation. The clean way is the right way for the world."

Mr. Leb made an even bolder statement, and guaranteed to execute soon a fully operational system, able to produce 5KW from each floater.
