STG recently broke ground on a new project site at Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Florida. This installation, to be used as a technology testbed and a domestic demonstration of the technology, is being undertaken in parternship with Sopogy, Inc. and timed to coincide with Eckerd’s Africa Initiative.
Assembly and installation of a donated array of SopoNova troughs was undertaken in a location next to the Galbraith Marine Science Laboratory on Eckerd’s Campus with invaluable help from Sopogy representatives, the Water Oak Development Group, and Eckerd College students. Continued work on the installation will be ongoing over the next several months and is expected to go live in early 2011. STG would like to give many thanks to all of the partners in this project, including MIT, Eckerd College, Sopogy, Inc., and Krinner Groundscrews.
