Project Phase Phase 3

Project Details Installation and commissioning of WaveRoller #1 in Portugal was underway with measurement and analysis of device performance completed in June 2007. The second stage of the planned pilot plant began with the deployment of WaveRoller #2 in Peniche, Portugal. Installation was completed on April 7, 2008. The main difference between WaveRoller #2 and its predecessor is WaveRoller #2 has more powerful hydraulic cylinder. Data collected during the test period will be used for verification of the CFD simulations and design of the next generation active controlled WaveRoller unit. Monitoring for sediment movement and fouling phenomenon will be ongoing.
