    PORTLAND, VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA

    PROJECT OVERVIEW

    Ocean Power Technologies (Australasia) Pty Ltd is seeking to develop a wave power station off the coast of Victoria near the city of Portland. The plant is expected to be built in three phases, with a total capacity of 19 megawatts. The Federal Government of Australia has awarded the project an AU $66.46 million grant under its REDP program to encourage new renewable energy technologies. Using the Australian supply chain, it is expected that a significant number of jobs will be created associated with fabrication, deployment, and maintenance operations over the life of the power station.

    PROJECT OBJECTIVE

    The 19 megawatts project will be sufficient to fulfill the energy needs of approximately 10,000 homes. Working with suppliers in Australia, OPT Australasia will build the wave power station to provide clean, renewable wave energy to a grid which currently relies heavily on fossil fuel generated power.

    The project may also be scaled up to 100 megawatts, benefiting from permitting and infrastructure achieved in connection with the 19 megawatts project.
