WET-NZ Ready to Launch

Anchors Loaded, Mobilization Underway

Final preparations of the WET-NZ were completed at the Port of Toledo over the weekend, and the device is almost ready to launch. To ensure sufficient water depth, the launch is scheduled for high tide this afternoon, which is at 3:30pm PDT.  Once it’s in the water, Wiggins tug will transport the WET-NZ to Newport to await deployment later this week.

On Saturday, the WET-NZ anchors, surface floats, and mooring lines were loaded onto the NRC Quest. The deployment vessel departs for Newport today and is scheduled to arrive early tomorrow morning, with installation of the anchors set to commence on Tuesday.
