MRECo Eyes First Bourne Tidal Turbine Testing in Summer

Marine Renewable Energy Collaborative (MRECo) said it has secured its first commitments for testing at the Bourne Tidal Test Site.

The organization in charge of Bourne Tidal Test Site development said it has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for the first testing of a tidal turbine on the test site with deployment expected in the summer of 2019.

Details surrounding the project have not been disclosed.

An MOU was also signed with the Blue Incubator for cooperation in using the BTTS for testing of sensors and instrumentation developed by companies resident at the Blue Incubator in Plymouth, MA.

Bourne Tidal Test Site (BTTS) is part of the New England Marine Energy Development System (NEMEDS), a network of development and test infrastructure. Located within a 100 mile radius NEMEDS offers developers testing facilities from TRL Levels 1-8 at university tanks, flumes located at the USGS S.O.Conte Anadromous Fish Lab, and the open waters of Muskeget Channel.
