Pacific Marine Energy Center – South Energy Test Site (PMEC-SETS) Research Facility Project

 illustrationPMEC2013

The 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.
