Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A wave farm or wave power farm is a collection of machines in the same location and used for the generation of wave power electricity.The Aguçadoura Wave Farm was the world's first commercial-scale wave farm. It was located 5 km (3 mi) offshore near Póvoa de Varzim north of Oporto in Portugal. The farm used three Pelamis wave energy converters to convert the motion of the ocean surface waves into electricity, totalling to 2.25MW in total installed capacity. The farm first generated electricity into the Portuguese grid in July 2008 and was officially opened on the 23rd of September 2008, by the Portuguese Minister of Economy.The wave farm was shut down two months after the official opening in November 2008 due to technical problems with the machines.
