The Government formally assessed the business case for the Wave Hub project early last year to ensure value for money to the taxpayer. Construction on the project began in late 2009 and is due for completion in August 2010 with the first wave energy devices expected to be deployed in 2011. The project's progress is being monitored and will be assessed by funders (including Government) in the normal way once it is complete.
