South Energy Test Site

PMEC SETS

NNMREC is currently in the permitting phase to develop the South Energy Test Site (SETS). SETS will feature full-scale, grid-connected testing capabilities. SETS will include multiple berths, and will be a leading source of research, which will help to answer some of the core questions concerning the industry.

PMEC-SETS will be the NNMREC facility where developers can test utility scale Wave Energy Converters (WECs) in the ocean with a connection to the electric utility grid via a subsea cable; four berths are planned. The facility will allow WEC devices to be certified to IEEE and other international standards. PMEC-SETS is being designed to accommodate single devices, or small arrays in a berth. The anticipated depth range for PMEC-SETS is 65-78 meters (MLLW).
