Wave energy developer Carnegie Wave Energy Limited has acknowledged RPS Energy in its recent update on the CETO 6 project off Garden Island, Western Australia.
Carnegie Wave Energy Limited is the ASX-listed inventor, owner and developer of the patented CETO wave energy technology that converts ocean swell into zero-emission renewable power and desalinated freshwater.
The CETO 6 Project will be the first demonstration of Carnegie’s CETO technology in deeper water, with each unit having a targeted capacity of up to 1MW, some four times greater than the current CETO 5 generation.
The offshore geophysical survey activities have now been completed, and the findings of these activities will influence elements of the CETO 6 Project, such as foundation selection, cable route and overall installation methodology.
Marine GeoSolutions managed by RPS Energy, on behalf of Carnegie, have undertaken the survey capturing vital information about the geological characteristics at the site.
According to the Carnegie update, the geophysical survey is a critical step in the environmental approvals process for the CETO 6 Project and the results of the survey will allow Carnegie’s project team to enter the next phase of the design process.
