New Energy Focus - 26/08/10

The latest stage of development of the Wave Hub renewable energy project has seen the export cable successfully pulled to the top of the beach at Hayle, in Cornwall, where it will be joined to onshore cables linked to a new electricity substation.

The South West Regional Development Agency (RDA) says engineers working to install its wave energy technology brought the end of the subsea cable ashore at 5am on Monday (August 23). This comes after an operation involving the use of more than 400 buoys to float a 1,800 metre stretch of cable weighing around 90 tonnes.
