Enel Green Power installs the first full-scale wave energy converter in Chile

Enel Green Power Chile installed the PB3 PowerBuoy, the first full-scale wave energy converter off the coast of Las Cruces, in the Valparaíso Region. The marine energy generator installed by Enel Green Power is the first of its kind installed in Latin America and the fifth in the world. The system is able to convert wave energy into electrical energy that is stored in a 50 kWh battery system located inside the PB3 PowerBuoy, which feeds the different oceanographic sensors that monitor the marine environment.
