GWAVE poised to transport power generation vessel to Cornwall testing Facility

0
Wave energy company GWave, based in Portland, Maine, has spent the past decade developing the Power Generation Vessel and now says it is preparing to transport the first full-scale vessel to the Wave Hub testing facility located off the coast of Cornwall in the UK for deployment in 2018.

The 32,000 ton-PGV is designed to float on the surface of the ocean and pitch with the swells. The weights located inside swing in a counter motion generating electricity.

A press release from Wave Hub quotes Robert Stoddard, CEO of GWave, saying, “Our project launch at Cornwall’s Wave Hub facility will be a critical step in GWave’s program to bring to market cheap, clean electricity from the ocean. Wave Hub was our clear first choice for the full-scale demonstration because of the world-class facility and staff at Wave Hub as well as the deep maritime expertise and experience of South West businesses.”

In the conditions expected at Wave Hub, the PGV is expected to generate enough electricity to power about 5,000 homes.
