Carnegie Scoops Two Innovation Awards

Wave energy developer Carnegie Wave Energy has received two separate innovation awards last week from the Australian Institute of Management WA and the Australian Water Association WA.

Carnegie Wave Energy was recognised as a world leader in the wave energy industry at the 2014 Australian Institute of Management WA WestBusiness Pinnacle Awards, for having invented and developed the CETO technology which harnesses the power of waves to produce clean power and freshwater.

Dr Michael Ottaviano received the award on behalf of the Carnegie team in front of more than 650 people at a gala ceremony at Crown Perth on Thursday night.

On Friday night, Carnegie, in conjunction with Perth based water desalination and water treatment company, MAK Water, received the Australian Water Association WA (AWA) award for Program Innovation for the integration of wave powered desalination into Carnegie’s Perth Wave Energy Project.

The AWA awards recognise innovation and excellence in the technology, business and delivery of water projects. Along with the prestige of being recognised as ‘the best in WA’ for innovative environment and sustainability programs within the water industry, Carnegie and MAK now proceed into the AWA National Awards in May 2015. Carnegie has worked with MAK water for the past 2 years on the design and delivery of a containerised seawater desalination plant to Carnegie’s Perth Project on Garden Island. Carnegie will shortly begin the integration of the desalination system into its Perth Wave Energy Project.

Carnegie’s Managing Director, Dr Michael Ottaviano, said: “It is a real honour to receive both these awards against such strong competition. It is a reflection of the continuing hard work and innovative thinking from Carnegie and its partners.”

MAK’s Managing Director Andy Byk, said: “We are delighted to be working with Carnegie on this ground-breaking wave powered desalination project and to be recognised by the Australian Water Association.”
