Start Preamble April 16, 2010.

On March 2, 2010, Oregon Wave Energy Partners I, LLC filed an application for a subsequent preliminary permit, pursuant to section 4(f) of the Federal Power Act, proposing to study the feasibility of the Coos Bay OPT Wave Park Project. The requested project boundary comprises approximately 7.36 square miles of coastal waters, located between 2.5 and 3.0 miles off the coast near Coos Bay, Oregon.

The sole purpose of a preliminary permit, if issued, is to grant the permit holder priority to file a license application during the permit term. A preliminary permit does not authorize the permit holder to perform any land-disturbing activities or otherwise enter upon lands or waters owned by others without the owners' express permission.

The proposed project would consist of: (1) 200 PowerBuoys having a total installed capacity of 100 megawatts; (2) an approximately 2.5-mile-long, subsea transmission cable; (3) an approximately 200-yard-long transmission line connecting to an existing substation; and (4) appurtenant facilities. The project would have an estimated average annual generation of 276,000 megawatt-hours.
