Offshore Wave Energy Converter


Offshore Wave Energy Converter

Following six years of detailed design and development, Ocean Power Delivery has completed construction of the first full-scale Pelamis Wave Energy Converter. Similar in size and rating to a modern wind turbine the Pelamis is designed to harness the energy contained in ocean waves to produce electricity. According to the company, their machine is the world’s first commercial-scale floating wave energy converter. The 750kW Pelamis measures 120m long by 3.5m wide and weighs 750 tonnes fully ballasted.

Pelamis was 100% assembled and fabricated in Scotland with over 90% of the machine’s content being sourced from the UK. The machine is a pre-production prototype for subsequent commercial systems. It is expected that a satisfactory demonstration of the machine at the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) in Orkney will lead to orders for the first production machines. Projections are that marine energy devices can make a significant contribution to meeting overall renewable energy targets in the coming years.
