During the summer months on the Pico island the sea becomes very calm. As such, this period is usually spent maintaining and repairing the machine and structure from the damage incurred over the aggressive winter season.
As well as the usual corrosion removal, re-painting and general maintenance, focus was put into recovering the pneumatic rams that actuate the two isolation valves.
Only a very small amount of production was achieved during this period due to the prolonged absence of significant wave energy resources.
