Oceanlinx is an international renewable energy company with a unique, commercially efficient system for extracting energy from ocean waves and converting it to electricity, or utilising that energy to produce clean, fresh water from brine. Oceanlinx’s core patented technology is an Oscillating Water Column (OWC) device, based on the established science of wave energy, but one which – when compared to other OWC technologies – offers major improvements in the design of the system, the turbine, and in construction technique.

About Us

Oceanlinx is a leading international company in the field of wave energy conversion. The company has developed proprietary technology for extracting energy from ocean waves and converting it into either electricity or desalinated sea water. Known as Energetech until 2007, Oceanlinx has been designing and deploying wave energy systems since 1997. The company has developed both a shallow water version of its technology, named greenWAVE, and a corresponding deep water version named blueWAVE. These commercial products are the culmination of this detailed decade-long development phase. Oceanlinx remains at the leading edge of marine renewable technology development.



Oceanlinx has also a developed a specific deep water oscillating water column (OWC) application, termed blueWAVE (for more on how an OWC works, please see the Our Technology page). This structure comprises a cluster of six floating OWCs, joined together via a space-frame. The blueWAVE is located in 40 - 80 metres of water depth, and is an anchored floating device. While the structure can technically be made from any material, it is generally ...


The airWAVE turbine is a design evolution, improving upon the original Denniss-Auld turbine. The airWAVE turbine has fewer moving parts and a conversion efficiency that is higher than both the Denniss-Auld and other comparable turbines. Like the Denniss-Auld, the airWAVE turbine is located well above the ocean, with no moving parts in the water. The airWAVE turbine further improves the overall wave-to-wire efficiency of the Oceanlinx greenWAVE, ogWAVE ...


proWAVE Software

proWAVE software is an Oceanlinx tool which allows one to model a wave energy converter (WEC) as a fully integrated system including oscillating water column (OWC), turbine, generator, flywheel, and all manner of controls features.
