Wave Energy Research

College researchers in Burin, Newfoundland are experimenting with wave energy to develop a pump that could provide water for aquaculture operations inland. The College of the North Atlantic team is in the fourth year of a research project on wave pump application, development and optimization. Over the course of the project, the team has developed a wave-powered device to pump water to shore for a land-based aquaculture pilot farm. Along with the original project plan, this multiparty funding has supported the development of the Wave Energy Research Centre (WERC), a field station with significant infrastructure, for long term research and...
