Project Phase Phase ?

Project Details The commercial scale CETO3 unit underwent extensive testing in open ocean waters and a depth of 25m off Garden Island, Western Australia. The single, stand-alone CETO unit experienced a range of sea states including 1m to 4.6m wave heights. The pump stroked its full range of displacement through to 3m and was successfully dampened at high loads. The pump also produced hydraulic pressures in excess of 90bar which is more than that required for reverse osmosis desalination Frazer-Nash has verified that the CETO 3 unit has a peak rated hydraulic power capacity of 203 kW, with an expected tolerance range of +25% and - 40%. This corresponds with the peak power output that the CETO 3 unit would deliver in an ocean environment such as the south west coast of Australia. In an Atlantic wave environment, such as the west coast of Ireland, Frazer-Nash has also confirmed a peak rated capacity of 182kW within the same tolerance range.
