Construction underway on US Navy MASK Basin upgrade.

Construction has begun on the upgrade to wave generating equipment at the US Navy’s Manouvering And Sea Keeping (MASK) basin. The basin, part of the Navy’s Carderock Division, is one of the largest mavouvering basins in the world and, once complete in late 2013, will have 216 flap wave generators capable of producing a total of over one megawatt of wave energy.
