MOO Students Learn About Operational Platforms at Ocean Power Technologies (OPT)

January 31, 2024

MS of Operational Oceanography (MOO) students recently visited Ocean Power Technologies (OPT) in Monroe, NJ to learn about OPT’s diverse marine technologies and their applications. The visit was hosted by Maria Force, Jeremiah Mendez, Ariana Dyer (a Rutgers ’23 alum), and Luis Cartagena-Soto, who provided an informative tour of the facility. During the tour, our hosts detailed the company’s mission and history, as well as the various operational capabilities of their versatile WAM-V autonomous surface vehicles and their wave-powered PowerBuoy platforms. The MOO students, as well as everyone at RUCOOL, express their gratitude to everyone at OPT for the valuable opportunity to engage and gain insights into their field.
