Northwest Energy Innovations (NWEI) awarded a contract to SST to provide a mooring system design for the WET-NZ wave energy (½ scale) device based on wave conditions at Oregon’s Northwest National Marine Renewable Energy Center (NNMREC) ocean test site.  This contract was later expanded by NWEI to include mooring hardware procurement and development and execution of a Deployment Plan for the WET-NZ device at the NNMREC site.  The wave energy device was successfully deployed and tested at the Oregon test facility starting in late  August thru early October 2012
