The article reports that Orecon would install its wave power device at Wavehub, the offshore electricity socket to be installed off the Cornish coast in England as a test bed for wave and tidal device. Orecon's buoy-style device, in which wave action forces air through a turbine to generate power, would replace a device from Oceanlinx, which has decided to install its equipment in Australian waters.
