Carnegie goes to the Bahamas to assess feasibility of 2 MW demonstration facility

Perth-based Carnegie Wave Energy, developers of a tidal project off the port of Fremantle, says it has successfully installed a wave-monitoring buoy off the coast of the Bahamas with a local partner.
Carnegie has partnered with Bermuda-based Triton Renewable Energy to develop the project, which has been selected by Bermuda Electric Light as a preferred renewable project.
The companies will use data gathered over the next 12 months to assess the feasibility of a 20 megawatt wave-energy plant, beginning with a 2 megawatt demonstration facility.
Carnegie is moving closer to a final decision and approvals of its WA project, located offshore Fremantle between Garden Island and Five Fathom Bank at a depth of 25 metres. Upon completion, it would be Australia’s first commercial scale wave energy project.
Carnegie has also been awarded funding to research the viability of a tidal project in Ireland by the Irish government.
