Carnegie looks to Chile for next CETO wave plant
Carnegie is pursuing opportunities to develop CETO wave power and desalination project in Chile.
The company has been investigating opportunities in South America, Chile in particular, through its subsidiary CWE Chile.
The Chilean Government has supported wave energy feasibility studies including the deployment of wave buoys to conduct site measurements.
Carnegie has also conducted separate site assessment studies and identified a number of suitable sites for CETO power and water projects, company’s press release reads.
Chilean government has recently established International Centre of Excellence (ICE) of Marine Energy, and Carnegie was selected as wave technology partner together with DCNS and Enel Green Power.
In addition, Carnegie has agreed terms to act as the exclusive representative of MAK Industrial Water Solutions (MAK Water) for the South American market.
MAK Water is the company that supplied Carnegie with containerized reverse osmosis plant used in Perth Wave Energy Project.
Michael Ottaviano, Carnegie’s CEO, said: “This Agency Agreement with MAK Water for South America creates an opportunity for Carnegie to expand its business opportunities in an emerging market. Carnegie has developed a unique capability in technology commercialisation in the marine and clean energy space which combined with MAK’s strength in water treatment will create a compelling business opportunity in water treatment and desalination in South America.”
