Project Details In April 2006, Wave Star Energy deployed a 1:10 scale prototype at Nissum Bredning in the northwestern corner of Denmark, which has been operational and grid connected. Since then, the prototype has logged almost 4,000 operational hours in its first six months of daily operation and has been through seven significant storms. The prototype has an output of 5.5 kW and can generate electrical power corresponding to the electrical power consumption of two single-family houses. The device will remain in Nissum Bredning until August 2008. Wave Star Energy has already begun work on the construction of a 1:2 scale model of a 6 MW prototype.
