(Corvallis, OR) -- Oregon State University has finalized a contract to manufacture cables that will carry electricity from a wave generation facility in the ocean to shore. The test facility will be called PacWave South and will be located seven miles west of Seal Rock on the central Oregon Coast. Companies designing wave power generation equipment will use it to test their devices. It's located away from fishing areas. The underground cables will be made in Norway by Paris-based Nexans.
