The Marine Renewable Energy Collaborative (MRECo) has entered into an agreement with the Conte Fish Research Center to manage tidal testing in its large flumes in Turners Falls, Massachusetts.

John Miller, Executive Director of MRECo, said: “We are very excited to be working with Conte to provide a standard two week test for in stream or tidal turbines, lowering the risk and costs of testing new technologies.”

The Conte flumes offer the first step for in water device testing, with larger devices to be tested at a planned site in the Cape Cod Canal, and full size turbines to be tested at a site in Muskeget Channel.

In addition to helping new companies commercialize their technologies, MRECo has partnered with the town of Edgartown on Martha’s Vineyard to develop a tidal project in Muskeget Channel, between Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket, the company said in a statement.
