Oregon Coast Towns Considered for New Technology


After months of work, the Oregon coastal towns of Newport and Reedsport are finalists to become home to the northwest's first grid-connected Wave Energy Test facility.  Belinda Batten, Director of OSU's Northwest National Marine Renewable Energy Center, says they beat out competitors Coos Bay and Camp Rilea for the proposed Pacific Marine Energy Center.  Now, batten says committees in Newport and Reedsport will fine-tune site analysis before a final location is chosen later this year.   The $25-million center is expected to be completed in three-to-five years,  providing new jobs and attracting wave energy scientists from all over the world.
