Wave Power Station Heads to Australia

Ocean Power Technologies has teamed up with Griffin Wave Energy, ltd. to bring a wave power station to Western Australia. Griffin is already one of the leading suppliers of diversified energy in Western Australia delivering electricity from gas, coal and wind power.

Ocean Power Technologies is slated to hand over a turnkey wave power station that Griffen will then connect into the grid. The wave power station will be capable of delivering 10 MW to start and will be expandable up to 100 MW in the future.

The wave power station is part of the Western Australian government’s desire to deliver 15-percent renewable energy by 2020. This ocean powered electrical station off the coast of Perth is the wave of the future in renewables and will serve as a model for other coastline cities to emulate.
