Scotland Has WaveNET

The world’s first linked array of wave energy devices being transported and deployed in the waters of the Isle of Muck on the west coast of Scotland in May 2014

When interconnected as an array, WaveNET’s movement is like a three-dimensional Mexican wave: the ocean’s energy pushes and pulls the array’s structure; each SQUID unit’s articulated joints flex, absorb some of the wave’s energy, with any unabsorbed energy passing to the next unit, all the way through the array.

This unique design allows the array to respond to the full orbital motion of the waves, from any direction, and allows power capture from 5 of the 6 elements of wave energy: pitch, roll, heave, surge and sway.
