HHL wave power 1PORT FAIRY, Australia: March 09 2016. Hansa Heavy Lift (HHL) has helped install a bioWAVE energy unit for a power plant in Port Fairy in the state of Victoria, Australia.

The pilot unit and retrieval rig, weighing 698 tonnes, were loaded in Vũng Tàu, Vietnam and discharged at Portland, Australia where the HHL ship Freemantle used its cranes to lower the unit onto the seabed where it will convert wave energy into electricity.

The bioWAVE device, which was inspired by undersea plants, is a 26-meter oscillating structure designed to sway beneath the ocean through an arc of up to 40 degrees.

The subsequent motion activates opposing hydraulic cylinders containing pressurized hydraulic fluid that spins a 250kW generator to produce electricity fed into the national grid via an undersea cable.

“As we strengthen our focus in the offshore industry, with a particular focus on transportation and installation in the subsea oil and gas market as well as the offshore windfarm sector, we expect to undertake more of these highly technical installations,” said Hansa CCO Joerg Roehl.
