Abstract
  • The North Energy Test Site (NETS) is PMEC’s non-grid connected, open ocean test site located approximately 4.6 km (2.5 nautical miles) off Yaquina Head, north of Newport, Oregon. The site is about 3.4 km2 (1 square nautical mile) and ranges in depth from 45 - 55 meters. It has a gently sloping soft, sandy bottom. Significant wave heights (SWH) average 1 - 2.5 meters during summer months at 6 - 9 second energy periods. During winter months SWHs increase to an average of 2 - 5 meters at 8 - 12 second energy periods, with maximum significant wave heights of 7 - 14 meters. We have characterized the environmental conditions of the site, and has conducted a significant level of environmental monitoring, including baseline and operational monitoring for benthic habitat, marine mammal observations, electromagnetic field studies, and acoustics. The site is fully authorized under all relevant state and federal statutes.
