Aquamarine Power's Oyster wave power technology captures energy in nearshore waves and converts it into clean sustainable electricity.
Aquamarine Power's Oyster 800 test programme verifies performance in line with numerical and tank test predictions.
Aquamarine Power is working with Bosch Rexroth and the Institute for Fluid Power Drives and Controls at RWTH Aachen University, Germany to develop an industry-standard power take off system (PTO).
The Oyster 800 programme succesfully supported skilled employement in Orkney, showing the potential to generate valuable jobs in peripheral and island communities.
Aquamarine Power's Oyster 800 demonstrates the technology's ability to survive three full winters at sea - including waves over eight metres high.
Oyster has a potential installed capacity of 64GW worldwide
Oyster 800 is 250% more powerful than Oyster 1
