Wave Energy Extraction for Vertical Profiling

Project Manager and Lead Engineer: Andy Hamilton

The 2007 feasibility study to examine the potential to recover sufficient power from vertical profilers to power not only the ascent of the profiler but also the instruments showed promising results. Although there are no “show stoppers,” several engineering challenges remain to be met. In 2008, a prototype will be developed.
