Mauritius: Carnegie begins design for wave project
Australia’s Carnegie Wave Energy has begun design work on its wave-powered microgrid project in Mauritius after receiving an $800,000 grant from the Australian and Mauritian governments. Carnegie will also provide $190,000 for the work. By year-end, the company hopes to have produced a renewable energy roadmap and an assessment of wave energy potential, as well as identifying a preferred site for six of the company’s CETO 6 turbines and designing of a microgrid-powered desalination plant on Rodrigues island. Carnegie will be assisted in the project by Australian microgrid specialists Energy Made Clean.
