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. Bombora is currently setting up operations in Europe to complete the product development of the mWave and engage the supply chain.
