Past Pertinent Test Experience The people associated with ocean renewable
The people associated with ocean renewable have a great amount of experience with ocean engineering. They have developed a prototype wave energy device and have developed the tidal test instrumentation form and the associated instrumentation. A good deal of this experience was enabled by transferring knowledge gained in offshore aquaculture systems and estuarine dynamics studies.
