Carnegie’s Wave Energy Research Facility is located at Fremantle in Western Australia and consists of an integrated onshore and offshore test facility. Onshore, Carnegie carries out high cycle, accelerated testing of CETO components to test performance and to increase understanding of wear and routine maintenance.
Offshore, Carnegie holds a lease over an ocean area that is used for ongoing in-sea prototype and pilot plant testing in a subdued wave energy “nursery” site allowing rapid testing and recovery. Carnegie is possibly the only wave energy company in the world to have exclusive access to such a Wave Energy Research Facility.
Various external organisations have tested their equipment at this site, including subsea positioning, corrosion monitoring and underwater PZT camera systems.
