Technology Description Sea waves move the hinged water wings of each submerged Langlee module analogous to the way sound waves move the diaphragm of a microphone Energy absorbed from wave motion by the moving water wings drives a hydraulic system which powers electric generators The array of Langlee power converter modules floats for best energy capture wave energy is highest just beneath the water surface The Langlee system is anchored to the seabed Each Langlee module has two pair of water wings located one half wavelength apart move in opposing directions as waves pass through the Langlee array

Mooring Configuration The mooring is based on standard mooring systems used for ships and offshore industry facilities
