Abstract

The option to have an WEC integrated breakwater at the port of Genoa ensures that the port will protect the area from harsh incoming waves, but also contribute towards the port decarbonization. However, for the solution to be viable, a first layer analysis must estimate its profitability. This works uses a long-term high fidelity wave numerical model from 1979-2018, estimating the potential energy production for an integrated OWC at the Port of Genoa.
