SST installed Columbia Power Technologies’ prototype wave energy converter (SeaRay) in Puget Sound for testing and operations during the winter season of 2010-2011, shown in the image below. This installation included the three-point mooring system, the buoy and an acoustic-wave-and-current profiler (AWAC). The SeaRay and AWAC were recovered and reinstalled several times for brief periods of data collection, modifications and inspections.
