Azura Wave

NWEI is developing the AzuraTM wave power technology for converting the endless supply of ocean waves into electricity to meet the rapidly growing global demand for renewable energy. Unlike other wave energy technologies, Azura extracts energy from both the heave (vertical) and surge (horizontal) motion of the wave, producing power from the relative motion between the hull and float.  Since commencing operations in 2010, NWEI and its partners have successfully completed pilot scale projects in New Zealand and Oregon, and NWEI is now conducting a grid connected demonstration project at the US Navy’s Wave Energy Test Site at the Marine Corps Base Hawai’i. Watch the video to learn more.
