Installation of large wave energy device

Customer Challenge:

Installation of the wave energy device bioWAVE near Port Fairy, Victoria, in rough weather conditions.

Cranemaster Solution:

Two large Cranemaster passive heave compensators with SWL of 700 metric tons and 400 metric tons.

The Results:

The two Cranemaster units functioned perfectly, resulting in reduced DAF in the splash zone and reduced landing speed for the large bioWAVE energy device.

According to Mr. Kay, CEO of ARENA, this project is a major achievement for Australia’s emerging wave power industry and represents a breakthrough in renewable energy innovation.
