  • Carnegie orders foundation for wave energy demonstration site

    Carnegie Wave Energy Logo

    Hydrokinetic developer Carnegie Wave Energy Ltd. has ordered offshore foundations for its Perth wave energy project, HydroWorld.com has learned.

    Keppel Prince Engineering Pty Ltd. will supply the equipment, while Fugro Seacore Australia Pty Ltd. will be responsible for its installation. Bluescope Steel is supplying the steel to be used in structural pile foundations.

    Carnegie Wave Energy said the offshore foundations are the ninth main equipment portion ordered for the demonstration site, which is expected to have a capacity of around 2 MW when complete.

    The site, to be located in western Australia off the Perth coast, will use Carnegie's "CETO" generating system. The system uses a fully submerged buoy that relies on the vertical motion of waves to drive a pump, which in turn delivers pressurized water to an onshore turbine via a submerged pipeline.

    HydroWorld.com reported in May 2012 that the company and partner Triton Renewable Energy had completed tests of a CETO unit off Bermuda's south shore.

    The project is being funded by a number of entities and low emissions energy development programs. Carnegie said installation of the foundation will begin by the end of this year.
