Tech/Engineering - Ships, Sailing, Maritime / Tail tube (buoy)
English term or phrase: Tail tube (buoy)
Me encuentro con este término en el siguiente contexto:

Some tail-tube buoys, which tend to oscillate vertically with the motion of the sea, generate power from the oscillating water column in the tube. The water column produces an oscillating air column, which in turn drives a small air-turbine generator.

Según el diccionario de la IALA: Tail tube (of a buoy): A central tube below the body of the buoy.

No encuentro un término en español...

Aguardo su ayuda.

Desde ya muchas gracias.

Cilindro / cilindro vertical [columna / torre]

Se refiere específicamente al cilindro vertical bajo la boya que contiene la columna de agua que asciende/desciende, permitiendo el accionamiento de la turbina por la presión diferencial de aire. Se trata de sistemas conocidos como OWC, en este caso flotantes (versus fijos o costeros).
