Removal of a wrecked wave energy generator stranded off a popular South Australian seaside holiday town has been delayed yet again, the local ratepayers group has said, six years after the project was sunk.
- Oceanlinx generator sank off Carrickalinga in 2014
- Works to remove structure delayed with court proceedings
- Plans to turn it into an artificial reef with marine life benefit delayed
The 3,000-tonne structure was being towed from Port Adelaide to Port MacDonnell in March 2014 when it started listing due to damaged air bags.
An effort was made to tow it to shallow water but the concrete and reinforced steel structure was jettisoned about 1.5 kilometres off the popular holiday destination of Carrickalinga.
