Project Phase Phase ?

Project Details The Perth Wave Energy Project will be the first grid connected wave energy project to utilise Carnegie Wave Energy’s CETO wave energy technology. The Project will be located at Garden Island, Western Australia, home to HMAS Stirling, Australia’s largest Naval Base. The CETO system consists of an array of submerged CETO units, subsea pipeline(s) to shore, and an onshore power generation facility located on Garden Island. The project has been under development for over two years and is now entering the detailed design phase, during which Carnegie will seek the required government approvals to construct and operate the project, and conduct extensive community consultation. The project is supported by Australian Federal Government funding through the Australia Centre for Renewable Energy’s (ACRE) Emerging Renewables Program (ERP), and the Western Australian State Government through the Low Emissions Energy Development (LEED) fund. The Australian Department of Defence is a strong supporter of the project evidenced by a collaborative Memorandum of Understanding. The project will be up to 2MW in capacity and, based on the recently completed preliminary design, is expected to cost $31.2m.
