What is the OE Buoy?

  • The “OE Buoy” is a Wave Energy Converter – it absorbs energy from ocean waves to generate green, sustainable electricity
  • Using the motions of the floating hull induced by passing waves, it transforms wave power into air power – like an air pump
  • This pressurised air rotates a turbine to generate electricity

Technology had been tested in onshore applications for many years.​

Ocean Energy took the concept offshore with a floating device.​

In 2011, Ocean Energy completed over 3 years of open water testing.​
