Dec. 3 (Bloomberg) -- Carnegie Wave Energy Ltd., a producer of technology that generates power from the sea, raised A$5.8 million ($6.1 million) to build its first grid-connected project off Perth, Western Australia.

The company got a grant from the state government as well as about A$3.5 million from private investors, mostly existing shareholders, Perth-based Carnegie said today in a statement.

The 2-megawatt wave-power project will cost about A$31.2 million, of which more than half is now government-funded, the statement shows. Construction will start in 2013, with power sent to the grid at the end of that year.
