Green Renewable Energy

The Oyster, a green renewable energy machine that produces electricity with tidal power, prototype using hydraulic technology to transfer wave energy to the coast, where it is transformed into electricity.

According to Ronan Doherty, technical director of the team that developed the prototype of Oyster, a key aspect of its design is an oscillator of 18 meters wide, which uses wave tanks and based on research conducted at Queen’s University Belfast (United Kingdom) under the direction of Trevor Whittaker.

This oscillator is attached to a piston and, when activated by wave action, high pressure pumps water to shore via an undersea pipeline. On land, conventional hydroelectric generators make this water at high pressure into electrical energy.
