The wave buoys, which were first deployed in December 2013, had been removed from site for a few weeks over the summer to allow for battery replacement and maintenance. They were returned to site this week by a Pelamis crew in conjunction with the Environmental Research Institute based in Thurso.

At the same time, an Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) was deployed at the site, which will provide an understanding of currents in the area.
