Carnegie’s CETO wave energy technology is the only fully submerged wave energy technology capable of producing directly desalinated water. A CETO desalination plant is capable of significantly minimizing energy losses when compared with traditional desalination plants. The below is a comparison of energy losses between a traditional coal powered desalination plant versus a CETO desalination plant.
Carnegie has previously produced zero-emission desalinated water at its Fremantle Wave Energy Research Facility to provide proof of concept for the technology. Carnegie is shortlisted for the supply of part of the renewable energy to the Southern Seawater Desalination Plant (SSDP) in Western Australia.
