Ocean Power Technologies, had been seeking to develop a wave power station off the coast of Victoria near Portland. The power station planned to be built in three stages had have a total capacity of 19 megawatts.

The Federal Government has awarded the project a $66.46 million grant under its Renewable Energy Demonstration Program.
