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.

Construction and launch of the E.ON Pelamis

This video demonstrates the development of a Pelamis wave energy converter from the manufacturing bay to installation at sea. This includes construction of a Pelamis machine from steel cans to completed tubes ready for quayside commissioning. This machine was built for E.ON in the Pelamis Wave Power manufacturing facilities in Leith, Edinburgh. The machine is the second generation Pelamis design, a P2, and was completed in early 2010.
