This project was funded under the Natural Resources Canada Energy Innovation Program and supported research into innovative technologies and techniques to advance the tidal energy sector. The research was comprised of five unique research initiatives with focus areas in environmental mo
February 2017 – December 2018
The objective of this project was designing and running a field experiment to test the performance of the Particle Acceleration/Particle Velocity (PA/PV) vector sensor.
Analysis of Tidal Turbine Mooring Systems in Turbulent Flows Applying the (Wind Industry) FAST Simulation Tool and DSA ProteusDS Software
March – September 2018
For floating tidal turbine platforms, the turbine forces and resulting platform motions have a direct impact on the lifetime of its moorings and cables. This means the tidal sector must predict accurate tidal turbine loading on floating platforms to determine mooring life and cable longevity.
Assessing Corrosion, Wear, Fatigue and VIV on Moorings and Cabling to Reduce Risk in Marine Operations
October 2017 – August 2018
The cost of cabling and moorings over the entire life of a tidal energy project is a significant proportion of total project expenditures and the potential failure of these components remains a major risk for the emerging tidal energy sector.
October 2015 – January 2018
The In Situ Turbulence Replication and Measurement (InSTREAM) project was conceived to address some fundamental questions about the turbulence physics in tidal energy sites and laboratory tanks used to simulate these sites.
January 2013 – October 2015
This research investigated and informed novel and cost-effective engineering solutions to extract and deliver energy from tidal flows.
