This is a significant step toward making ocean energy commercially available.
The 62.5-megawatt peak power wave energy generation project will be built off the coast of
Once completed, the project is expected to produce enough energy to meet the needs of 10,000 homes. As this project also contributes to
Wave power devices extract energy from the surface motion of ocean waves. Unlike wind and solar sources, energy from ocean waves is very predictable and can generate electricity for more hours in the year than wind and solar. In addition, wave power devices are typically quieter and much less visually obtrusive as compared to wind turbines, which typically run more than 130 feet in height. In contrast, a PowerBuoy is only 30 feet in height above the waterline and is barely visible, as it is typically three miles offshore.
'We are applying our design and system integration expertise to commercialize promising, emerging alternative energy technologies, including ocean power,' said
In this project,
'We are pleased to be working with
The buoy moves up and down with the rising and falling of waves. This mechanical energy drives an electrical generator, which transmits power to shore via an underwater cable. The system is electrically tuned on a wave-by-wave basis to maximize the amount of electricity produced.
The company brings high-level capabilities in complex systems integration, project management, information technology, cyber security, and advanced manufacturing techniques to help address these challenges. Today,
