SST awarded a $222,000 Professional Services contract by Snohomish County PUD #1 to provide marine engineering services for their tidal energy project in Puget Sound. The contract extends through 2010. The Admiralty Inlet site was chosen by the PUD to provide renewable energy using tidal in-stream energy conversion (TISEC) to Snohomish County PUD customers. This demonstration project is one of two in Puget Sound for which SST is providing marine services. The services include site survey support, site selection recommendations, cable route design, cable landing design and system installation design and support services.
