Wave Water Works tests Oscillo Drive output

US-based wave energy developer Wave Water Works has verified the energy production and output of its Oscillo Drive device ahead of wet testing in Michigan, USA.

The company collaborated with business accelerator Oakland University (OU) INC, and OU’s School of Engineering and Computer Science (SECS) students who conducted the testing.

Based on the results obtained by the students Wave Water Works approved additional trials at an undisclosed operational testing site for the Oscillo Drive in Port Huron, Michigan.

This extension of the OU SECS testing will allow for further measurement and monitoring of the power input and electrical output from the wave-water oscillating movements.

Wave Water Works said it is locating additional working sites, including locations in Macomb County, Israel, and Lebanon.

Chuck Keys, Project Director and Business Manager of Wave Water Works, said: “It is estimated that OU INC, through the professional efforts of SECS students and faculty, provided Wave Water Works with more than $1.5 million worth of professional engineering services.”

Wave Water Works’ Oscillo Drive is a mechanical gear box that operates without using springs or levers, exploiting any oscillating motion and converting it into a single direction motion, thus creating a continuous direction force, according to the company.

The Oscillo Drive can be scaled into a single unit that fits in the palm of the hand, or built as larger full-scale units, that can be deployed in arrays.
