CETO makes fresh waves
- Operations & Maintenance
The desalination plant that is powered by Carnegie Wave’s CETO system is now fully integrated and operational.
According to Carnegie Wave, the seawater reverse osmosis desalination plant, co-located with the Perth Wave Energy Project, is producing fresh water.
The plant was commissioned off the electricity grid earlier this year, and is now fully integrated with the CETO wave power plant, meaning that the desalination plant is capable of running both off the grid and directly off hydraulic power from Carnegie’s wave project, or a combination of both.
The first bottle of wave-powered desalinated water produced was presented by Carnegie’s COO, Greg Allen, to the Western Australian Minister for Water, Mia Davies, at the Australian Water Association’s annual conference.
As reported earlier, the containerised desalination pilot plant on Garden Island, Western Australia, was manufactured and supplied by MAK Water Industrial Solutions (MAK Water), with Carnegie signing an agency agreement to act as the exclusive agent for MAK Water in South America.
The agency agreement has been extended to include remote islands, with the first joint Carnegie/MAK Water island opportunity currently underway with MAK Water’s desalination experts already undertaking the first activities of a process of technical review, site upgrades and capital replacement at 4 sites on remote Indian Ocean islands, Carnegie Wave’s press release reads.
Carnegie Wave Energy is an Australian wave energy developer that has designed CETO wave energy technology.
