Massachusetts Maritime Academy Cadets Get hands-On Learning Experience with PDI’s Hydrokinetic Turbine

During its hydrokinetic deployment in the Cape Cod Canal in December, 2017, cadets from the Massachusetts Maritime Academy (“MMA”)observed, assisted with and learned about PDI’s hydrokinetic turbine. Bill Hubbard, Professor of the Marine Science, Safety and Environmental Protection Department at MMA commented on the experience:

"Cadets at Massachusetts Maritime Academy gained hands on experience in underwater video monitoring of the PDI turbine.  They were able to assist in deployments and understand the operation of this marine hydrokinetic system.  Both the operational, environmental and safety aspects of the deployment provided students with valuable skills."
