(The sequel of the Project Summary Part 3)

Stages of project development:

I. Patenting base technology on the basis of the submitted International Application in accordance with PCT. Patenting will allow to monopolize for 18 years the given business in the countries, where the use of offered power installations will give the best commercial effect. It is a number of European countries (the Great Britain, Portugal, Spain, Denmark, Greece, Cyprus, Norway), and also India, the Republic of South Africa and Australia.

II. Manufacturing of large, commercially attractive pilot experimental sample of a base model of float wave power installation with output capacity of 200-600 kW for waves with height of 1-2 m (but capable to withstand storm loading of waves of any height). The design of the given first large installation should include the possibilities for regulation (adjustment) of some parameters within wide limits, during field tests, with the purpose of defining optimum parameters.

The activities at this stage, for example, under the contract, will be undertaken by the organizer of the project and the author of some inventions, D-r A.N.Rusetsky'' (Physical and Mathematical Sciences) who is registered as an entrepreneur and has the big 25-years practical experience in experimental physics and in construction of various metal structures as an engineer and developer and a welder - assembler, as well as contacts and experience in production. He has successfully and in time executed considerable work under contracts with a number of Moscow organizations.

The given stage comprises the following steps

a) Depending on the amount of money offered by the investor, final engineering calculation of the biggest installation capacity possible, the sizes and safety factor of a wave power installation will be made, and its design will be determined. The given stage will demand 3-4 weeks and 2 - 4 thousand dollars for payment of services of involved experts.

It is desirable the sizes of the frame of floating variant of installation to make not less than 30x30 m with the height not less than 5-6 m. The frame of such installation will contain, for example, under-water pontoons in the form of 5-7 tubes with diameter 1-1.2 m, which will be arranged parallel to each other with the distance between them 5-6 m. Such design will prevent the installation swing at heavy sea. The total weight of such installation with 18-24 floats with sizes 3x2x1.5 m will be 100-200 t.

b) 5-8 months rent of open areas at any factory in Moscow of the size of approximately 5040 meters for the future assembly of a power installation frame, as well as of a floor space about 200-300 sq. meters in some warm premises for metal and welding works, and also works against corrosion and coloration. Turning processing of shaft and basic units, manufacturing of details of fastening, etc, are required also, therefore, it would be more convenient to rent industrial areas at a factory having large lathes allowing processing of details of diameter up to 1-1,5 m. There exist such factories in Moscow and we have established contacts with them.
This step will demand about 15 - 20 thousand dollars.

c) Purchase of materials and equipment - metal sheet, steel tubes for manufacturing pontoons and force elements of a frame, foam plastics and the device for filling of cavities of pontoons and floats with it, steel and kapron cables, bearings and shafts of railway cars, generators and storage batteries, voltage converters.

To purchase of materials and details and units the sum of 80 - 300 thousand dollars is required, depending on the investor possibilities. It should be noted that a larger and, hence, more expensive power installations should be commercially much more attractive both as to output capacity and design, as well as to the ratio " price / maximal output capacity ".

d) The manufacturing of details and units, as well as assembly and adjustment of installation at the rented territory will demand 100 - 200 thousand dollars.

e) Railway transportation of manufactured units and details to the seacoast, for example, the Black sea, to Anapa or Novorossisk, will demand 3-6 thousand dollars.

f) The installation assembly on a coastal shelf within 1-2 weeks, security services and maintenance (4-8 persons) for the period of 2-4 months of tests and optimization of parameters, and also the coordination of activities with local authorities will demand 5-10 thousand dollars.

g) Photo- and video survey and advertising leaflets and videoclips will require about 3 000 USD or more.

In total: the realization of the given stage requires 208-550 thousand USD.

III. After tests of the first pilot wave power installation in real sea conditions is planned to begin active promotion of the given product at the world market. First of all we plan to place information on the project in catalogues of Chambers of Commerce and Industries in the countries where operation of the given installations will give the greatest economic benefit. For example, in the Indo-Russian Chamber of Commerce and Industries have already shown interest to these power installations and under the condition that installations output parameters will correspond to these declared by the Project author, the chief representative has promised to promote the reception of the state order of India for hundreds of such installations. A protocol of intentions has been signed.
