Bombora Wave Power
Bombora Wave Power Pty Ltd has developed a membrane style wave energy converter called an mWave™. Resting on the sea floor, similar to a fully submerged reef, it is invisible from the shoreline. As ocean waves pass over the mWave, the membrane pumps air through a turbine to generate electricity. The mWave is unique among wave energy converters as it simultaneously addresses the ‘cost of energy’ and ‘ocean wave survivability’ challenges. Bombora is currently setting up operations in Europe to complete the product development of the mWave and engage the supply chain. At the conclusion of the product validation cycle Bombora Europe would construct, supply and maintain 1.5MW mWave converters for wave farms across Europe.
