Ocean waves an alternative source of power

Something to think off offshore? Less weight on topsides.

Dateline 2019-05-05, NST:

Ocean waves can be one of the mechanisms to create renewable energy besides using the solar photovoltaic (PV) panel.

Universiti Malaysia Terengganu school of ocean engineering Associate Professor Dr Mohd Zamri Ibrahim said the initiative by the government to use solar PV panels to create renewable energy and promote energy efficiency was a good move.

However, he said other natural resources could be used to produce alternative energy.

“Other alternatives that can be used to create renewable energy are wind turbines and ocean waves.

“Our country has yet to use natural resources such as ocean waves. It can be one of the mechanisms to create new energy.

“I hope the government will take up this idea so that they can reduce the cost of installing materials too,” he told the New Sunday Times.
