HARNESSING THE POWER OF THE SEA

Ms. Skemp has developed a multi-disciplinary program to address exploration and evaluation of ocean energy potential. SNMREC is now poised to begin testing an experimental research turbine, and is awaiting approval and a federal lease to install and operate a small-scale turbine test berth offshore at Fort Lauderdale.
