EWP’s floaters do not connect to the ocean floor, and do not create any new presence in the ocean. EWP only connects its floaters to existing man-made structures. There is no underwater mooring or underwater electric cables. Eco wave power will have no additional environmental impacts due to this. In addition, Eco Wave Power uses biodegradable hydraulic fluid.
