A new wave of South Australia power generation?

A floating structure to generate electricity from wave power will be tested off the South Australia west coast. Measuring 110m long by 13m wide, the Wave Rider will float around 800m off Elliston on Eyre peninsula.

The managing director of Wave Rider Energy, Christian Gerlach, said in an ABC News report, the structure might have wide application along the province’s coastline in the longer term.

“We found this [area] was a very good starting point for the project because it has one of the highest waves in the world,” he said.

“If this all goes well then we’re quite keen on seeing a number of those devices along all those hotspots of the South Australian coastline - that’s the Eyre Peninsula, that’s the southern and western part of Kangaroo Island, as well as the Limestone Coast and south-east.
