Project Details Wave Hub has been successfully developed under the direction of the South West Regional Development Agency (SWRDA) since 2004. In early 2007 SWRDA committed 21.5m towards the funding of the project. Along with 4.5m committed by the UK Department of Trade and Industry and the Governments recent planning approval for the project, it is expected that the Wave Hub equipment will be installed and commissioned in 2009. Wave Hub consists of four separate berths at its offshore site, each capable of exporting 5 MW; making Wave Hub the largest wave farm in the world.
