Jonathan Fiévez - Chief Technology Officer, Carnegie Wave Energy
Venue:
Auditorium, Engineers Australia, 712 Murray Street, West Perth
Synopsis:
The project employs three 5th generation CETO wave energy converters to feed the onshore power station where hydraulic energy is converted to zero emission electrical power. Australia’s largest naval base and the 4000 people serving there ensure the island has a thirst for power as well as fresh water, which the project also provides through its pilot, wave powered desalination plant. The CETO 5 converter itself has a unique design that has been developed over a number of years by Carnegie’s world class engineering team and in-house computational modelling capability. Many components however have their heritage in offshore oil and gas applications and Carnegie is working with some of the world’s leading suppliers to adapt their technology to CETO.
