A manufacturer of wave power products will research its energy converter. Columbia Power Technologies LLC received funding from the U.S. Department of Energy to research an intermediate-scale version of its Manta Wave Energy Converter.
Columbia Power consortium partner, GL Garrad Hassan, will review and analyze wave data at sea trials. The company has already assisted in review and development of the technology road map, numerical modeling of the wave energy converter response, tank testing guidelines, and on-site support during tank trials. Deployment for the converter is projected for late 2010, in advance of a full-scale ocean demonstration.
