June 22 (SeeNews) - Australian renewable energy firm Bombora Wave Power said on Monday it has signed a pact with Anoa Power that may lead to the installation of wave energy collectors in Indonesia.
As part of the agreement, Anoa will look for sites suitable for installation of Bombora’s devices, while the latter will confirm the electricity generation capability across the selected locations. The Aussie firm noted that the average wave energy resource level in Indonesia is somewhat less than that available in regions such as southern Australia.
Bombora’s wave energy collectors include a concrete base with a sloping membrane wall, a simplified construction that results in low cost of energy, according to the company. The devices are designed with a rated capacity of 1.5 MWe.
The new technology evaluation agreement is a precursor to formulation of a manufacturing and distribution contract, Bombora added.
