The clam wave energy converter concept has been developed over a number of years of Coventry University. It is intended to be a simple, reliable and cost effective system which will be moored in moderately deep water a few kilometers from land. This paper describes the operation of the system and shows how the current state of development, model scale trials, mathematical modelling and component fabrication and testing, can be taken forward to a full scale sea going prototype with a projected mean electrical outpout of 1MW.
