CETO is the first wave power converter to sit on the seabed, where it is invisible, safe from storms and ocean forces, and self contained.
The Australian inventor of the CETO converter, Alan Burns, said the first task in the testing phase is to pump seawater ashore at 7000kpa (1000psi) as this will determine the size of the turbine installed on shore to generate electricity, currently expected to be up to 100 kilowatts for this prototype.
CETO has dual capability to produce power or fresh water and in desalination mode the prototype is expected to produce about 300,000 litres of fresh water per day.
