How does the sea snake produce electricity?



  1. 0 Votes

    The sea “snake” is a sealed tube filled with freshwater that is anchored at one end and as the waves wash along the snake they force bulges of water through the snake. This causes the walls of the snake to bulge transferring the energy to a turbine in it’s tail.

    The sea-snake is a long tube filled with water and closed at both ends. It sits just below the surface of the water with one end facing incoming waves. When a wave hits the end of the tube it creates a bulge wave, or a “wave of internal pressure” to form inside the tube. As the wave continues to pass over the tube the bulge wave grows in size until it reaches the other end of the tube. At this end of the tube the bulge wave turns a turbine and the power generated is transfered to shore via a cable.
