WEST PERTH, Australia 12/21/11 (PennWell) -- Ocean power developer Carnegie Wave Energy Limited announces its application for a Foreshore License for an offshore demonstration project near County Clare, Ireland.
The 5-MW facility would feature the company's Cylindrical Energy Transfer Oscillating technology that has already been used in several ocean power projects -- including one near Fremantle, Australia, that came online in February 2008.
fter first consulting with the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI), Carnegie's Irish subsidiary, CETO Wave Energy Ireland (CWE Ireland) has submitted formal applications to the Department of Environment, Heritage and Local Government for a Foreshore License covering an area between Freagh Point and Spanis Point off County Clare.
The news comes just days after the Australia-based company announced that it has completed a site assessment study for CETO projects along the Chilean coast in South America.
Additionally, Carnegie named Chilean-based Renewable Energy Development Enterprises (REDE) as its local development partner. The agreement is set to last five years.
