The Laminaria WEC is constituted from vertical surface that interacts with the incoming horizontal wave energy. As a result of the horizontal movement in the water the Laminaria WEC is subjected to a tilting and translating motion, which is transferred through the mooring ropes to the generators. The device can be lowered deeper in the water to protect it from undergoing excessive forces caused by heavy storms. Laminaria can convert waves into power from all wave directions, heights and lengths at the same time.
