This paper describes the development of an wave energy converter. We devise a new type of the wave energy convertor which generates electricity by means of under-water pressure oscillation. This wave energy converter is installed on the seabed floor. That is, there is no exposed body on the surface of the sea. The wave energy converter comprises an activated assembly which is adapted to be displaced in response to water pressure oscillation to vary the volume of bellows cavity and a power take off assembly which generates electricity in response to movement of the activated assembly.
