Tests of Full-Sized Modular Dam Componentry
LPS has begun testing of various full-sized components of its innovative modular dam systems. The tests are being conducted at Alden Research Laboratory with design input and guidance from GZA GeoEnvironmental. Components to be tested include rack frame members, connectors, seals and other ancillary components.
These tests will continue throughout the first half of 2018 and will lead to the selection of optimal component designs for assembly into full sized modules to be transported, assembled and tested at a pilot facility in MA and LPS's first utility-scale installation in VA.
