Successful cylinder removal

Published:  13 August, 2014

Aquamarine_power.jpgWave energy company Aquamarine Power reports it has successfully removed both cylinder modules from its Oyster 800 wave machine as part of a comprehensive summer refit – with the firm aiming to recommence Oyster power generation in the autumn.

The 800kW test machine, located at the European Marine Energy Centre in Orkney, has already clocked up three full winters at sea – a world first – and has generated multiple megawatt hours of electrical power.

The single Oyster 800 unit at EMEC has now achieved over 20,000 hours of operations in all sea conditions, proving survivability through even the worst winter storms.
