Wave energy to power undersea data centers

Offshore, underwater data centers are going to be powered using wave motion, says a sustainable energy developer. And it’s going to happen soon.

Commercial wave energy company Ocean Energy says it’s almost completed a marine hydrokinetic wave generator build and that the 1.25 Megawatt power-production capacity vessel will be ready to deploy in 2019.

The 125-feet-long wave converter OE Buoy will provide enough electricity for a subsea data center platform, the company claims.

“Technology companies will be able to benefit from wave power [in] marine-based data storage and processing centers,” Ocean Energy CEO John McCarthy said in a press release earlier this month. “OE Buoy presents them with the potential double-benefit of ocean cooling and ocean energy in the one device.”
