BBC News - 17/05/10

An electrical "socket" linking wave energy machines off the Cornwall coast is to be put in place this summer.

The yellow steel structure, about the size of a van, is part of a £42m scheme which is expected to start delivering power to the National Grid in 2011.

It will sit on the seabed in 50m (164ft) of water 10 miles off Hayle and be covered in several metres of rock.

It will feed power from four wave energy machines to an electricity sub-station at Hayle.

I wonder how much power it is hoped will be delivered to the National Grid? I wish them luck.

It reminds me of a certain Beatles song:

"As we live a life of ease
Every one of us has all we need
Sky of blue and sea green
In our yellow wave machine"
