Specifications include, but are not limited to: The PacWave South project will be the nation’s first, pre-permitted, grid-connected facility for testing utility-scale wave energy converters. The project will include an offshore wave energy test site located approximately 6 nm offshore of Newport, Oregon. At the test site, various types of wave energy converters will be deployed and will be connected to the local, onshore power utility grid via four subsea and underground power cables, plus a fifth, auxiliary cable (Figure 1). Subsea power cable installation at the “Shore Landing Site” will require HDD to route cables through underground conduits. The “Shore Landing HDD Routes” will run from the parking lot of Driftwood Beach State Recreation Site (“Driftwood”) in Seal Rock, Oregon, under the beach bluff, beach and surf zone, to approximately 30-feet water depth offshore. The total drill path length is approximately 5,000 feet (Figure 1).
