Pacific Marine Energy Center – South Energy Test Site (PMEC-SETS) Research Facility Project
Pacific Marine Energy Center South Energy Test Site (PMEC-SETS)
Research Project was proposed by the Northwest National Marine Renewable
Energy Center (NNMREC-OSU) at Oregon State University in June 2013.
The proposed research lease request is approximately 5 nautical miles
offshore Newport, Oregon with an area of approximately 33 square miles.
The project would consist of four test locations, or ‘berths’ , to
demonstrate the viability of wave energy off the U.S. by providing a
grid-connected ocean test facility for prototype and utility scale wave
energy devices. For more information about this project, click on the
