PWP revamps wave converters…

Pelamis Wave Power Ltd – is revamping its wave converter power generators.

The wave energy converters are intended to be linked together to form a “wave farm” on the ocean’s surface as seen here.

Hydraulic rams resist the motion of the waves and pump hydraulic fluid through electricity-producing generators. A wave farm of 40 Pelamis machines, covering a square kilometer of ocean surface, is capable of generating electric power for 20,000 homes.”

 

Jon Benzie, senior engineer at PWP contributes:

“The PWEC is an extremely innovative machine for harnessing the ocean’s energy. ”
