Wave tank tests lay groundwork for world energy first
Submitted: 9 January 2004
Engineers are re-creating the awesome power of the North Atlantic at an Inverness research facility.

They are using a huge wave tank to model sea conditions at the Faroe Islands, mid-way between Iceland and Norway.

The work marks the beginning of studies which, over the next 12-18 months, will provide the groundwork for what is set to become the world's first large-scale, commercially viable power station powered by wave energy.

The Inverness study is being carried out by Wavegen, world leaders in harnessing wave power to generate electricity.
