NEWPORT, Ore. —

Oregon State University officials say a site near Newport on the Oregon coast has been selected for a new wave energy test program.

The final decision on the site was made by officials from the Northwest National Marine Renewable Energy Center, which is a joint research effort of Oregon State University and the University of Washington.

The site selection follows two years of discussions with the Oregon coastal community, fishermen, state agencies, wave energy developers and scientists. It is within Oregon territorial waters, near the Hatfield Marine Science Center and close to roads and marine support services.

The site will not only allow testing of new wave energy technologies, but will also be used to help study any potential environmental impacts on sediments and marine animals.
