    NAVFAC EXWC hosts Wave Energy Test Site blessing ceremony

    MARINE CORPS BASE HAWAII- The Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC), Engineering and Expeditionary Warfare Center (EXWC) Wave Energy Test Site (WETS) located in Kaneohe Bay. NAVFAC, EXWC hosted a Wave Energy Test Site (WETS) blessing ceremony at Marine Corps Base Hawaii (MCBH) July 26, to mark a renewable ocean energy milestone. The event signified the opening of deep water berths at the WETS, which, in addition to the existing shallow-water berth located off Marine Corps Base Hawaii, comprise the grid-connected infrastructure being used to accelerate the evolution of wave energy conversion (WEC) device technologies. This site allows the Navy and Marine Corps to evaluate the feasibility of various WEC configurations and provides WEC device developers the opportunity to further test their respective system designs and work towards device commercialization. The ceremony included various speakers who addressed the importance of the project and key players in the development and approval of the WETS and a traditional Hawaiian blessing.
