A world first project
Wave Swell Energy (WSE) has deployed its 200kW wave energy project on King Island, Tasmania, adjacent to the harbour at the township of Grassy.
The unit was installed at Grassy, King Island, on January 10, 2021. Unit commissioning will commence shortly. This is a significant event for WSE’s shareholders and stakeholders.
WSE will work with the island’s energy and network provider, Hydro Tasmania, to connect the unit to the local grid and deliver energy from the project into the existing network.
Hydro Tasmania will independently meter the energy produced and, therefore, validate the efficacy of the project.
The wave energy produced will complement Hydro Tasmania’s existing hybrid grid, further diversifying the renewable sources and reducing diesel consumption on King Island.
