E.ON Pelamis machine in Orkney, April 2012

An intrepid Pelamis team braved the rough waves of Orkney to record this footage, which shows the Pelamis wave energy converter owned by E.ON operating at the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) in Orkney. A couple of clips have been slowed down to show the motion of the machine through the waves.

For more information on the testing programme of the E.ON machine in Orkney, visit its project page.
