Australia's First Wave Energy Plant Reaches Its New Home

Australia's first wave energy power plant has arrived at its new home in Port Kembla as reported in WAVE POWER PLANT FLOATED INTO PLACE (11/5/04). The plant, which was constructed in Indonesia, will be stationed about 200 metres off Port Kembla's eastern breakwater where it will be in the best position to generate power from the movement of waves.

According to this other article, the plant was developed by Energetech . The plant is eventually expected to generate enough power for at least 500 homes and possibly as many as 1500 in optimal conditions.
