Mak Industrial Water to Manufacture and Construct Carnegie's Wave Powered Desalination Plant

Carnegie Wave Energy Limited (CWE) today announced the award of the manufacturing and construction contract for its wave powered Desalination Pilot Plant to Perth-based MAK Industrial Water Solutions.

MAK Industrial Water Solutions is an experienced provider of reverse osmosis desalination solutions throughout Western Australia and nationally. It has a particular focus on containerised sea water reverse osmosis desalination plants. The contract of construction for the Onshore Plant building and civil works will be awarded separately.

Carnegie’s Desalination Project Manager, Edoardo Sommacal, said:

“We are very pleased to have reached this important milestone of design completion and to now move into desalination project manufacture and construction which is scheduled to be complete in the first half of 2014.”

The desalination pilot plant will be integrated into Carnegie’s Perth Wave Energy Project on Garden Island, Western Australia. Onshore site works for both the power and desalination plants have now commenced.

The desalination pilot will demonstrate, for the first time globally, the production of both power and freshwater from the ocean’s waves. The plant will have the capacity to supply up to 1/3rd of the water needs of Australia’s largest naval base, HMAS Stirling, located on Garden Island.
