THE SALTER DUCK

V. Ryan © 2005 - 2009

 

Several devices have been designed to harness energy from the waves. The ‘Salter Duck’ is an example. The duck ‘bobs’ up and down on waves and a special turbine inside converts this movement into electricity. The Salter Duck is as large as a Double Decker bus. They are arranged in set patterns in the sea, to take advantage of wave formations. Salter ducks have been developed over two decades and as oil increases in price, this type of device is likely to be cost effective in the future.
