Paolo Danubıo, Sales Manager for WOW, described the venture as a way for both companies to drive new growth opportunities. “Our aim is to match the power of both our innovative companies so that we can serve our clients even better and bring more value-added products to them,” he said. “The distribution agreement is a natural fit that will allow us to serve the growing demand for these types of products in the aquatics industry.”


The companies invite attendees of IAAPA’s European Attractions Show (EAS) in Liseberg/Gothenburg, Sweden, Oct. 6-8, to visit their booths to learn more about the partnership, ask questions and see the benefits of the Wave Ball in person. (Polin will be located in Booth numbered C110, and WOW can be found in Booth A345.)


A deceptively simple appearance


Most wave generators – which require pistons, water tanks or fans – consume a lot of energy. Moreover, they create waves that are “lost” afterward. WOW generators work the opposite way. And, despite the Wave Ball’s simple, round appearance, it is a product of high-level technology whose development required the expertise of specialists with a wide range of knowledge, from fluid physics and mathematical modeling to mechanics, electronics and data processing.

The product works by combining sensors with powerful software and hardware to fully control the frequency and size of wave production. The system creates a first wave, which spreads through a pool. Then, once that wave reflects off the pool’s walls, it returns to the generator, and a computer-management system then controls the required power to amplify (or decrease) the waves produced. The computer allows for real-time control of the waves based on the pool’s environment, including the pool configuration and the fluctuation in the number of swimmers.


The product is now available in nine different models

A partnership with impact


The arrangement between WOW and Polin will allow the two companies to work together to deliver the Wave Ball’s unique, patented technology with both competitive pricing and expanded product offerings to the firms’ customers. In addition, the agreement positions the companies to capture market share in new regions and industries that are looking to integrate artificial wave generators into their facilities and take advantage of the latest and most advanced technology.



Kubilay Alpdoğan, Sales Director at Polin, says,We believe that the Wave Ball fits well with the needs of our wide range of customers, which include waterparks and resorts.” The company has developed exclusive and successful projects all over the world that vary in size from large-scale and indoor parks to hotels and resorts. “No matter what their size, though,” Alpdoğan says, “they are all looking for innovative, safe, long-lasting and profitable products, which the Wave Ball delivers perfectly – high function, an innovative approach and high safety standards.


Polin has developed more than 2,500 waterpark projects in 93 countries worldwide.The fact that most of our clients are repeat customers demonstrates our commitment to providing them with excellent service, innovation and the finest quality products every time,” Alpdoğan adds. “The Wave Ball will be an appealing offer not only for new customers but also for previous customers.
