FIRST WEC AT HAWAII WAVE ENERGY TEST SITE30 Nov 2015
In August and September, Sound & Sea Technology, Inc. (SST) successfully managed and participated in the assembly and systems integration of the first wave energy conversion (WEC) device for the U.S. Navy’s Kaneohe Bay Wave Energy Test Site (WETS) in Hawaii.
Since May 2015, SST has been assembling and integrating components for the Fred. Olsen Ltd. Lifesaver Energy Platform (LEP) in preparation for eventual offshore deployment and testing at WETS. LEP is an advanced electromechanical point absorber WEC platform that uses unique point absorber hull and leading-edge power take-off (PTO) configurations. LEP will be tested and evaluated for approximately six months at WETS.”
