Neptune 4 Fabrication
Neptune 4 has a primary emphasis on storm survivability.
One of our goals is to survive at least 6 "Gale Force" storms and be fully operating as soon as each storm has passed.
A secondary emphasis is on testing the improved WEC system of Neptune 4 which is designed:
a. for the new, larger wave profiles expected at the
deployment location on the west coast of
Vancouver Island, and,
b. with respect to the energy extraction optimizing
lessons learned from the testing and experiments
made with Neptune 3.
