Default Wave Power

In the United States, the Pacific Northwest Generating Cooperative is funding the building of a commercial wave-power park at Reedsport, Oregon.The project will utilize the PowerBuoy technology which consists of modular, ocean-going buoys. The rising and falling of the waves moves the buoy-like structure creating mechanical energy which is converted into electricity and transmitted to shore over a submerged transmission line. A 40 kW buoy has a diameter of 12 feet (4 m) and is 52 feet (16 m) long, with approximately 13 feet of the unit rising above the ocean surface. Using the three-point mooring system, they are designed to be installed one to five miles (8 km) offshore in water 100 to 200 feet (60 m) deep.

anyone know anything about this wave-power park in Oregon ?

Not quite the same thing, but there is a big tidal generator located at the mouth of Strangford Lough here in Northern Ireland. Keep meaning to go and try and get some photos of it, but haven't got round to it yet. Here's some links;

We have a prototype wave power generation system here off Perth called SETO.
