NREL back at the Sway site
Sway is happy to continue the co-operation with National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) of Colorado, USA. Early June, NREL re-installed scientific wind, wave and motion measurement equipment on the Sway prototype. This will greatly enhance the value of the Sway testing, and will provide accurate measurement to verify not only the Sway concept, but can also be used to verify computer codes for designing and analyzing such concepts.
