Vessels moored off-shore typically rely on diesel for fuel. For vessels like feeding barges, used in aquaculture, frequent re-fuelling also risks spills and other disruptions to their operations. But what if you could harness the energy from the waves for an endless, reliable, clean source of energy by using a submerged buoy to convert the motion into electricity
energy? Over the next two year Carnegie Clean Energy will test its adapted CATO system for just these sorts of applications. If successful, decarbonising offshore aquaculture would be just the beginning.
