Vigpr.Ocean Energy
Date: 2019-10-21
In Washington State, Portland-based Vigor Industrial LLC is reporting completion of a OE 35 Buoy wave energy converter for Ireland-based Ocean Energy. The buoy weighs 826 tons, measures 125 feet by 59 feet, has a 31-foot draft, and has a potential rate capacity of 1.25 MW in electrical power production.

The $12 million buoy, which was funded by the U.S. Department of Energy's office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy and the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland, will be transported to the U.S. Navy Wave Energy

Test Site in Kanehoe Bay Hawaii for 12 months testing. Ocean Energy plans to construct an additional five buoys for deployment at the Oregon wave Energy Test Site off the coast of Newport, Oregon.

Navy Sinks Climate Change Task Force (Ind. Report)
U.S. Navy
Date: 2019-08-28
The Navy Times is reporting the U.S. Navy scuttled its Obama-era Navy Task Force Climate Change in March. The task force was designed to prepare naval leadership for global shifts in sea levels, melting ice sheets and ocean temperatures. Navy officials have been quoted as saying the task force's mission was "no longer needed" (under the Trump administration?).

While Trump downplayed, denied and generally ignored climate change, his Pentagon continued to follow a the task force's "climate change adaptation roadmap" to protect against catastrophic storms that put coastal bases at tremendous risk. For example, Naval Station Norfolk, in Virginia -- headquarters of the Atlantic Fleet -- sea levels have risen nearly 15 inches since World War I. The facility floods about 10 times annually, a number estimated to rise to 280 events per yearby the year 2100, according to a report by The Union of Concerned Scientists.

Former Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus and retired Marine Corp General and Trump Sec. of Defense James Mattis have warned against the possible catastrophic effects of climate change and the need to address it, relative to the military, but apparently to no avail.

Portland Shipyard Constructing Wave Energy Buoy (Ind. Report)
Wave Energy
Date: 2018-10-31
Seattle-headquartered Vigor is reporting construction has begun on a $6.5 million, 826-ton wave energy buoy at its Portland, Oregon shipyard. The buoy, which will generate approximately 1.25 MW of electricity while offsetting 3,000 tpy of carbon emissions, was jointly contracted and funded by the Irish and American governments.

The completed buoy will be towed to Hawaii and anchored in the U.S. Navy's wave energy test site off Oahu Island.

According to the U.S. Energy Information Agency, "The theoretical annual energy potential of waves off the coasts of the United States is estimated to be as much as 2.64 trillion kilowatt hours, or the equivalent of about 66 pct of U.S. electricity generation in 2017." In Oregon, the estimated potential value to the local economy is $2.4 billion per year with an associated 13,630 jobs," Vigor reported.
