‘Our goal is to deliver energy by creating the most robust, maintainable and economic system possible,’ said Steve Hench, Chief Scientist at Neptune Wave Power. ‘The tests have been very positive.’

The advances of model 3.1 include a custom designed generator, scalable and mass producible hull design and a remote mechanical tuning feature.

‘The buoy is performing just as we modelled it,’ said Eddie Mayfield, President of Neptune Wave Power. ‘We are very excited to obtain real-world validation of our work to date.’
