The video to the left shows AMI's next development model in a pool test where the generator motion is powering a DC fan.
This generator is smaller in diameter and lighter than lighter than the previous platform version, and will generate approximately 10 watts of power in 15 cm (6 inch) wind chop in the intracoastal waterways with a 0.4 meter
(~18 inch) diameter buoy. This is enough to power navigation lights and other marine monitoring equipment in intracoastal locations.
AMI is working with DJ Palka Enterprises, a machine shop and injection molding company, on the manufacturing of the prototype generators.
