Update: One of the buoys at the BioWAVE site. An information session about the project will be held in Port Fairy on Wednesday, September 28.

A public meeting will update Port Fairy residents about Victoria’s first wave energy project next Wednesday.

The unit, which was deployed in late December, is yet to funnel electricity into the national grid, with damaged equipment and heavy swells delaying the project. 

Renewable energy technology company BioPower Systems chose the location, five kilometres west of Port Fairy, because of its high-powered waves.  

Once operational, the renewable energy system will extract energy from the waves and turn it into electricity on board the BioWAVE unit.  

CEO Tim Finnigan said company representatives would provide an update on the project and answer questions at the Victoria Hotel Drill Hall from 7pm.
