Working principle

  • A buoy with a long vertical tube (the acceleration tube) passing through it
  • A water piston inside the tube connected to a power conversion system
  • A mooring system allowing the buoy free vertical movement while securing it on station
  • A connection system from the buoy to the local power grid
