Many Thanks to Dr. Robert Shaw, who tirelessly dedicated his engineering prowess, team management experience and enthusiasm for all things tidal and marine to the MRECo board. His tenure was remarkable and very appreciated by the entire MRECo team. We are eternally grateful to him for his surprisingly clear and well produced videos and many photos of the installation of the BTTS and of many operational sessions since installation in the Cape Cod Canal.
“Many thanks to you and the other MRECO players for the opportunity to contribute to the worthy goal of furthering alternate energy devices and instrumentation. It has been a real pleasure! A great ride!” said Dr. Shaw, “It is time to yield to someone with more energy and direct experience in the area. By doing so we can all hope for further MRECO success at Turners Falls, the Bourne Tidal Test Site in the Cape Cod Canal, and the Muskeget Channel operations. Thank you all”
