TRL 7/8: Open Water System Testing & Demonstration & Operation
Technology Description In the simplest terms, a float travels up and down with the waves and operates a pump to pressurise sea water which is piped ashore. Many individual pumps are connected together to produce substantial amounts of pressurized water. Once ashore the pressurized sea water is used to drive a standard hydroelectric turbine to produce electricity.
