Protean Wave Energy plans to commence deployment of up to 30 Protean wave energy converter buoys at the Port of Bunbury (Demonstration Wave Farm) in April 2016.

The deploymant is a part of a non-exclusive license agreement (License) signed with the Southern Ports Authority (SPA)

The Demonstration Wave Farm will be deployed progressively from April 2016 for a trial period of up to 6 months.

The Demonstration Wave Farm is a key step in the commercialisation process of the Protean wave energy converter and performance data will be collected from the Demonstration Wave Farm during the trial period.

Data collected during the trial period will support the pre-feasibility assessment of a commercial pilot wave farm planned for the Island of Hanimaadhoo in the Maldives.
