Wisconsin Wave Pump

This article, Wave pump moves toward completion , Times-Standard (4/14/05) reports that Wisconsin company Independent Natural Resources may begin testing a wave pump, the Seadog , within the year. The article describes the article as follows:
Once built, the 128-foot high, 17.5-foot diameter pump would be anchored and partially submerged a mile offshore to be subjected to wind, waves, tides and currents for a year... The pump should move 535 gallons of water per minute -- or 2 3/4 Olympic-size swimming pools of water per day, based on an analysis of wave patterns in the area. Eureka engineering firm Winzler and Kelly's analysis found the pump could withstand 50-foot waves during 9-foot tides, 80-mph winds and major earthquakes.
Thomas expects the first pump to cost $500,000. Much of that will likely go to local contractors.
