The bioWAVE is a submerged structure that sways naturally back and forth beneath ocean swell waves. Energy absorbed from the
waves is converted to electricity by an onboard self-contained O-Drive module. The electricity is delivered to onshore consumers by a subsea cable.
Each bioWAVE is several stories high, and can produce up to 250kW of steady electrical power, roughly equivalent to about 200 houses. Electricity supplied from bioWAVE is expected to be more consistent than supply from wind or solar power, and could be the considered near-baseload in many locations.
bioWAVE is protected by patents in all potential markets worldwide.
