Hi. I was wondering if anyone could advise on the IT job market in Perth at the minute? I am currently staying in SA but thinking of moving over to Perth. Particularly interested in the Service Management/Service Delivery side of things. I've been looking on the job boards but there doesn't seem to be much around. I've been in touch with a few agencies as well who have said that there isn't much around. I'm keen to have a job before we would think of moving over. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
Australian Wave Energy developer, Carnegie Corporation, formally launched its Perth Wave Energy Project yesterday. The launch was attended by Western Australian Minister for Energy the Honorable Peter Collier at Carnegie’s Wave Energy Research Facility in Fremantle, WA. The State Government has committed $12.5 million to the $50 million project. The first facility was initially planned for Albany, but Garden Island was chosen instead because the waves in Albany were too small. Stage one of the project, which has already commenced, involves the deployment of a single stand-alone commercial scale CETO unit in the Sepia Depression, between Garden Island and Five Fathom Bank in 2010. The deployed system will consist of the mooring, a CETO unit and a data telemetry buoy. Deployment of the CETO unit will be for an initial period of up to 12 months involving periodic inspection and maintenance of components. This will be the first commercial scale wave energy unit to be deployed in Australia. Activities on site relating to the deployment of the first commercial scale, autonomous CETO wave energy device have already commenced. Currently the jack-up rig (JUP) owned and operated by Boskalis Australia Pty Ltd, pictured below, is on site and installing a drilled and grouted pile mooring that will form the foundation for Stage 1 of the project. It is expected that this activity will be completed shortly. Carnegie’s Chief Operating Officer, Greg Allen, said, “Upon its completion, Carnegie’s Perth Wave Energy Project will be the first commercial scale wave energy project to operate in Australia. The primary aim of the project is to demonstrate the CETO technology in commercial operation for the first time however, it will also deliver Carnegie its first project based revenues from the sale of power.” The commercial demonstration project will have a peak installed capacity of 5MW, generating sufficient power for around 3,500 households. The Project is forecast to create 30 jobs and save over 500,000 tonnes in greenhouse gas emissions over the life of the project. The project will utilise Carnegie’s $12.5 million LEED grant from the Western Australian Government announced earlier this year. Detailed cost and design activities associated with Stage 2 will be undertaken during 2010 with construction and commissioning scheduled for 2011.
