March

MK3PC is the first in Australia of this size to be connected to the electrical grid and producing energy.

July

Results from the MK3PC exceeded expectations in regard to performance. Independent electrical generation data supplied by the power off-taker, Integral Energy, has validated the 2.5 MW rated design of the full scale device. The unit was operated with both the Oceanlinx proprietary turbine and a third party turbine, and produced consistent grid-quality electricity that was supplied to local Integral customers in the Illawarra region.

December

Certification authority Det Norske Veritas (DNV) has independently verified the power output of Oceanlinx’s blueWAVE OWC. This is a powerful third party validation of Oceanlinx’s rigorous quality control and of the blueWAVE capability to produce an electrical output of 2.5 MW.

Oceanlinx unveils new technology proWAVE, greenWAVE and blueWAVE.
