Wave Buoys
Ocean, wave, Buoys
Buoy type wave generators use the up and down motion of the waves at a single point. Some use the up and down motion to transfer liquids within chambers to spin turbines. Some for more shallow conditions use a piston that extends to the sea floor to drive a hydraulic motor. Others use compressed air chambers that run small wind turbines.
