The history of SeaPower flows together with its researchers, who have been focused on the designing and testing activities since 1988. At that time, most of the activities concerned the field of aeronautics. As a matter of fact, our company used to deal with wind tunnel testing and design on scale models of general aviation aircraft, followed by flight tests on real aeroplanes in order to determine their flight dynamics and performance.
Over the years, the attention and dedication regarding projects in the field of renewables increased more and more. The first and fundamental accomplishment had been reached in 1999, when the KOBOLD marine turbine – which is patented, the first of its type and still the world’s first in terms of longevity in operation – became operational.
Later on, our research group became larger and larger. Subsequently, our range of skills and our expertise broadened, and they reached a higher degree of interdisciplinarity. Regarding this ambit, our company had been engaged in a number of private as well as of regional, national and European public projects. Take a look at here.
For further information on the SeaPower projects and other projects in the energy field, see the dedicated section here.
Our involvement in the aeronautics and aerospace fields has never stopped and over the years, we had the opportunity to work in different sectors and areas. In each of these, our commitment is always maximum, with the aim of designing a better world.
