The first and only wave energy technology to be deployed in New Zealand
Successful testing of four prototype devices at offshore sites. This has involved research deployments of up to 163 continuous days.
Awarded the first resource consent in New Zealand for a wave energy development project. This was granted in April 2010 with a second test site consented a few months later in August
The only NZ-designed marine energy technology to receive financial support from the NZ and US governments. In fact we are the only NZ developer to to receive international funding
