We (MOE) have just completed our testing at the Davidson Laboratory at the Stevens Institute of Technology, and it has been a very exciting week. Above is a pic of our model in the high-speed towing tank, which looks kind of like a particle accelerator filled with water. In fact, the towing tank is capable of achieving very high speeds - it can tow a model at 68 mph! Wave energy converters rarely go that fast ;-)
New name, but the same old guys. The name of our team in the US DOE Wave Energy Prize has changed to McNatt Ocean Energy (MOE). This was a joint decision between Cameron and Chris and the DOE to distinguish our activities in the American competition (Cameron has entered the prize as an American) from the Scottish company Mocean Energy LTD.
