Wave energy testing in the ‘weatherbomb’

Squid units are coupled together to form WaveNET arrays.  Arrays can be made up of a number of units to suit the wave climate and the power requirements of the site.  The unit being tested at Kishorn Port is checking systems.  When this testing is completed 3 units will be used in a further demonstration of a WaveNET array on a fish farm site on the west coast of Scotland.
