This paper presents the feasibility study for a green touristic infrastructure by the installation of a WEC system in the port of Giardini Naxos, in the Mediterranean Sea. The area is characterized by a low amount of annual wave energy. The WEC system chosen is the OWC and its geometry has been tested by means of a small scale physical model. The surface elevation and the pressure on the structure have been recorder in such tests in order to evaluate, respectively, loadings and reflection at the front wall. The eigenperiod of the water column inside the device is also obtained. Finally, the economic return is estimated.
