Betcha there will yet another load of excuses and they will NEVER put the Fur Cur in the wate.
Even IF they did how much power would the 100tons of rusting scrap iron put out on a day like today

Whoops....looks like they do have a BROCHURE on their web site.
Whooptee fur king doo
Who wants to be the first customer?
(Nobody in their right minds!)
"Charles Frederick Dunleavy: No. We're out there looking to sell multiple buoys, multiple autonomous PowerBuoys right now. So, the shape of discussions and meetings that we have range from, "Okay, I'd like one," to, "All right, let me start off with maybe a small number."
Fur Kmee dead!
What part of FUR KING BULLSHEET don't you understand?
If they really have a product (any fur king product) that is ready for market then why (the fur K) don't they have the specifications on their web page?
That way, if it really was any good, the customers would come knocking on their door.
Instead of that we have "It really comes down to more feet on the street representing OPT in the marketplace. So, we have a pretty broad amount of effort associated with the autonomous marketing selling effort."
We are going to waste even more money on bloated salaries for our team of geriatric gluttonous gobbling gulping guzzling PORKERS!
Yeah yeah, the old SMOKE AND MIRRORS trick again.
Everyone's already been there, done that
AND IT DOESN'T WORK!
Gets too hot, costs too much, too unreliable, takes up too much space, nobody wants it etc. etc.
Are they just SLOW LEARNERS or are they BOONDOGGLERS?
Either way...it's a load of old BOLLERX!
and don't forget....

We develop and are commercializing proprietary systems that generate electricity by harnessing the renewable energy of ocean waves. The energy in ocean waves is predictable, and electricity from wave energy can be produced on a consistent basis at numerous sites located near major population
centers worldwide. HORSEPLOP!
Wave energy is an emerging segment of the renewable energy market. Based on our proprietary technology, considerable ocean experience, existing products and expanding commercial relationships, we believe we are the leading wave energy
We currently offer two products as part of our line of PowerBuoy® systems: a utility PowerBuoy system and an autonomous PowerBuoy system. Our PowerBuoy system is based on modular, ocean-going buoys, which we have been far king around with for nearly a decade. The rising and falling of the waves moves the buoy-like structure creating mechanical energy that our proprietary technologies convert into electricity. We have tested and developed wave power generation and control technology using proven equipment and processes in novel applications. Our two products are designed for the following applications:
• Our utility PowerBuoy system is capable of supplying electricity to a local or regional electric power grid. Our wave power stations will be comprised of a single PowerBuoy system or an integrated array of PowerBuoy systems, plus the remaining components required to deliver electricity to a power grid. We intend to sell our utility PowerBuoy system to utilities and other
electrical power producers seeking to add electricity generated by wave energy to their existing electricity supply.
• Our autonomous PowerBuoy system is designed to generate power for use independently of the power grid in remote locations. There are a variety of potential applications for this system, including sonar and radar surveillance, offshore cellular phone service, tsunami warning, oceanographic data collection, offshore platforms and offshore aquaculture.
From October 2005 to October 2006, we operated a demonstration PowerBuoy system with a maximum peak, or rated, output of 40 kilowatts, or kW, off the coast of New Jersey under a contract with the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities. This PowerBuoy system has been removed from the ocean and is currently undergoing planned maintenance prior to re-deployment. No other PowerBuoy systems are currently deployed.

Grim Ness in Orkney is an exposed break. that has pretty consitent surf and can work at any time of the year. Ideal winds are from the south with some shelter here from southeast winds. Groundswells and windswells are equally likely and the best swell direction is from the northeast.. It very rarely gets crowded here. HOW SURPRISING!
At the present time both tide and wave energy are suffering from orientation problems, in the sense that neither method is strictly economical on a large scale in comparison with conventional power sources. In addition, neither will produce electricity at a steady rate and thus not necessarily at times of peak demand. Wave power stations suffer even more from these problems, their rate of production being unreliable. In Norway development of wave power was taken a step further, concentrating on small applications on remote islands and the like, and for quite a while a small power plant (500 kW) operated successfully in Toftestallen until it was swept away by the sea.
The disadvantages of wave power stations compared to maybe their closest rival - wind power - are obvious: A wave power unit will probably not have much more than three times the output of a single wind turbine, but the construction costs are likely to be far higher due to mooring problems, the bulkiness and comparative complexity of the whole structure and the water-based location. It will take some time - and far more investment into renewable energy sources - before the only comparative bonus, the fact that they use up and deface less land, will prevail over economic considerations.
And while wave energy is used successfully in very small scale applications, such as powering lighthouses or navigation buoys, its short term prospects as a major contributor to large scale energy production seems to be economically almost ruled out. So until the cost of maintaining the present rate of carbon dioxide emission is taken into account when building new power stations and a policy is adopted that depends less rigorously on market forces, the likelihood of tidal or wave power playing a major part in the energy supply of western industrialised nations even in the medium term future is small.

WHY WOULD YOU EVEN BOTHER?
They cost 10 times as much as a flat panel.
Profit is ZERO because nobody in their right mind would want to buy them.
