Swedish firm CorPower Ocean, one of the new generation of firms, also uses buoy technology, to absorb energy from the surge and heave of waves with its HiWave resonant WEC. But, it has sought to get out more with less using phase control, to enable it to oscillate in resonance with incoming waves. It does this using a pneumatic pre-tensioning system between the buoy and mooring system, to allow a higher rate of oscillation, as well as its WaveSpring technology, contained within the buoy, which amplifies the motion created.
