We love everything about Alden Research Laboratory in Holden, MA. It's drenched in the rich history of hydropower and fluid dynamics. The company is, rightly, beloved in the Commonwealth and with any luck we will be able to reflect back some of the awesomeness and "can do"-ness that these guys have provided us from Day 1.
If you like to tinker, you could mistake the Alden campus for heaven.
Despite what it looks like, these guys actually aren't making an album cover. This is the dam test wall at Alden. Chad Cox of GZA GeoEnvironmental, Scott Jenne of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, and Dave Schowalter of Alden are discussing how best to rig up a series of strength and leakage tests for our modular impoundment modules.
