The Pelamis Wave Power Machine: Graphic Video

This graphic video, produced by E.ON and ScottishPower Renewables, shows a wave farm of two Pelamis machines. Pelamis machines use the motion of ocean waves to generate electricity.

A Pelamis machine constructed for E.ON has been undergoing testing as part of a pre-commercial demonstration process since October 2010 at the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) in Orkney. This is one of the second generation Pelamis 'P2' machines. A second Pelamis P2 machine ordered by ScottishPower Renewables is currently in the final stages of commissioning in Leith, Edinburgh. This machine will join the E.ON Pelamis in parallel berths at EMEC later this year.
