Founded by a small group of the University of Naples Federico II, Seapower Scrl has now become an independent research center, with public-private participation, working in the field of industrial engineering, with a special focus on energy from renewable sources.
Present in the market for more than 30 years, Seapower has unique technical expertise, know-how, resources, and tools in the following fields:
. Mechanical and electrical modeling and simulations.
. CFD and acoustic analyses.
. Dynamic and aeroelastic modeling and analysis of metal and composite structures.
. FEM and fluid-structure interaction analyses.
Reverse engineering – 3D scanners; Experimental field campaigns (performance, structural loads and others); Structural testing on wind blades (in a dedicated laboratory)
+ UNIQUE TEST FACILITIES (AT THE UNIVERSITY OF NAPLES).
Naval towing tank;
Materials testing machines (for static and fatigue investigations and climatic chamber)
A division of Seapower operates in the area of asseverations and validations. More than one hundred client companies have benefited, for example, from technical asseverations on their R&D projects to apply for the automatic tax credit for R&D activities.
Seapower is involved in design, modeling, prototyping, laboratory and field testing of both individual components and entire systems for renewable energy production. We have a track record consisting of complete design of several vertical and horizontal axis based systems for tapping clean energy from wind, river and tidal stream as well as wave energy converter systems.
SEAPOWER is giving a special interest toward technological development of floating wind farms, whose main advantages are: low visual and acoustic impact; higher producibility and greater area availability.
Seapower is a research and testing center, owner of many research and development projects co-funded by regional, national and European institutions. Applied research activities, in various industrial sectors, are constantly evolving.
The center is active both on its own initiatives and in partnership with client companies, offering its expertise, not only for technology transfer to third parties but also for drafting technical proposals that are structured and suitable for application to public calls for proposals.
Seapower is a proponent of an international open-space laboratory, located in the Strait of Messina, aimed to host experimental activities which may affect all systems aimed to clean energy production from sea with special focus on tidal currents.
