Wave energy:

One design uses the up-and-down motion of the waves. It resembles a very-large-diameter pipe in short segments, but only able to move vertically, similar to a bicycle chain. The power is generated in the junction of the "links" by the vertical movement of these adjoining "links" caused by the oscillation of the waves. It generates power 24 hours/day, is not affected by tides, and does not have to be built in the actual estuaries. However, it is subject to storm and cyclone damage, and as they are semi-submerged often ships can't see them until it is too late to avoid.

What is a Mechanical waves?

A mechanical wave is a disturbance (an oscillation) that moves through a medium. The source transfers mechanical energy into the medium itself, and the medium propagates the energy of the wave. Examples are sound and an earthquake, and a tsunami.
