Acoustic Doppler Aquatic Animal Monitoring (ADAAM) project A Discussion with Greg Trowse
The Acoustic Doppler Aquatic Animal Monitoring (ADAAM) project is advancing research led by Dr. Len Zedel of Memorial University with the support of Nova Scotia firm Luna Ocean. Greg Trowse of Luna Ocean took some time recently to respond to a few questions, sharing details of his collaboration with Dr. Zedel, talking about the importance of this work and what he hopes to achieve moving forward.
Because there’s not yet a standardized, optimal way of extracting power from tidal currents, many tidal industry technologies are currently being tested around the world. The Testing of a New Turbine Blade Design and Blade Materials project used Canada’s largest university aquatic research facility – Dalhousie University’s Aquatron – to demonstrate the potential of a new hydrokinetic tidal turbine design.
Why did you apply for an internship at OERA?
I applied to OERA because I have an interest in the energy industry and am drawn to the innovation happening in this field, especially in renewables. OERA is driving some of this innovation and I was excited at the opportunity to be able to gain experience in both sustainable energy research and project management.
