MARION, Mass. - After several environmental studies and careful review by multiple agencies, the Marine Renewable Energy Collaborative (MRECo) has received final approval from the US Army Corps of Engineers to install the Bourne Tidal Test Site within the Cape Cod Canal.

"We are very pleased the Corps of Engineers has determined that the Bourne Tidal Test Site will have no impact on the critical mission of the Cape Cod Canal and the local environment," said John Miller, Executive Director of the MRECo.

Funding for the test site was provided by the Seaport Economic Council. The site is located well outside the commercial channel and tucked into an accessible spot near the railroad bridge on the mainland side of the canal.

Water velocity has been measured at over 2 meters/second (4 knots) on the maximum tidal cycle in both directions, enough to turn different types of tidal turbines to test their efficiency, power output, robustness and more. Turbines of up to 3 meters can be tested with vertical lift provided for easy access.

MRECo expects to install the platform in November and is accepting proposals for testing in the spring of 2018. Organizations, individuals, companies, and research institutions that would be interested in using the site for testing their own tidal energy devices and/or marine and remote sensors should contact John Miller at: director@mreconewengland.org; 508.728.5825
