Conventional subsea remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) perform poorly in currents exceeding 1.5 m/s. This is a key operating limitation in the success and cost of marine operations in the Bay of Fundy, where current speeds reach 5 m/s.

November 2017 – March 2019
Turbine wake characterization is a key endeavour to the development of in-stream tidal turbine arrays. In a sense, a turbine’s footprint includes its wake, wherein flow speeds are less and turbulence is elevated compared to the ambient surroundings. It is thus desired to not just delineate wake
