Carnegie Starts Albany Wave Energy Project

Carnegie Clean Energy has started Albany project design and development activities following the $15.75 million funding from the Western Australian State Government.

The first phase involves the detailed, localized measurement of the wave resource at the specific offshore site proposed for the installation of the CETO 6 unit. The measurement of metocean
conditions is now underway via the installation of a wave buoy approximately 1.5 kilometers off the existing Albany wind farm.

The data buoy measures wave height, period and energy spectra and is transmitting this data to Carnegie’s CETO project team.

Project design and development activities include consideration of environment, Native Title, planning consent, grid connection studies and approvals. Further consultation will also be undertaken with the local community, industry and other stakeholder groups, the company said.

The Albany wave energy project will be the first offshore demonstration of Carnegie’s CETO 6 technology. The project will design, manufacture and install a CETO 6 unit in Carnegie’s existing licence area offshore from Torbay and Sandpatch in Albany during 2019/2020.
