Carnegie Wave Plans to Produce Power, Freshwater at Pilot Plant

Nov. 5 (Bloomberg) -- Carnegie Wave Energy Ltd. awarded a contract to build a desalination pilot plant in Australia expected to produce both power and freshwater from the ocean’s waves for the first time.

The plant, backed by A$1.3 million ($1.2 million) in Australian government funding, will have the capacity to supply as much as a third of the water needs of the nation’s largest naval base, located on Garden Island in Western Australia, Perth-based Carnegie said today in a statement.

The desalination facility will be manufactured by Perth-based Mak Water Industrial, Carnegie said. Construction is scheduled to be completed in the first half of next year, according to the statement.
