Carnegie Shortlists Four Sites for CETO 6 Wave Project
Carnegie Wave Energy Limited (CWE) has shortlisted four sites for its CETO 6 project that will follow the Perth Wave Energy Project.
The company announced that two possible sites have been identified in Australia and two more internationally: one in France and one in the UK. Carnegie is now in discussions with governments regarding grant funding opportunities.
The design of the next generation CETO 6 unit is underway. The CETO 6 unit will be at least twice the power capacity of the current 240kW CETO 5 unit being used in the Perth Project. The CETO 6 technology will feature further efficiency improvements, offering a significant step change in the cost of generation from CETO wave energy.
An initial CETO 6 project would demonstrate the functionality of the new CETO 6 design in an array, similar to the CETO 5 project. This would then allow a subsequent commercial CETO 6 project of greater scale to be deployed economically at a range of sites currently under development as part of Carnegie’s project pipeline.
