Global Maritime to Support EU Wave Energy Project

;s why OPERA is such a ground-breaking project and why Global Maritime is delighted to be involved in the mooring and risk management element. For the first time, the wave energy industry will be able to access high quality, open-sea operating data, see some of the latest mooring and other technology innovations tested offshore, and look forward to long-term cost reductions of up to 50%.”   Inside the WEC is an oscillating water column (OWC) that forces air through a turbine that in turn generates electricity. The WEC has been developed by OCEANTEC and will use a novel shared mooring
