Australia: Oceanlinx Awaiting State Government Approval
Australia’s first 1MW wave energy converter is awaiting for the State Government’s approval, writes The Border Watch.
Namely, the New South Wales based Oceanlinx is planning to deploy its wave energy device offshore Port MacDonnell.
The wave energy plant will be located approximately 4 kilometres off the coastline, with a 20 square metre concrete unit that has two-thirds of the structure under water.
This company has recently secured AUD 4 million in funds from the Australian Government for the AUD 7 million project.
Oceanlinx is expecting to start the production of the wave energy device earlier this year.
