March – December 2020
The Pathway Program - Technology Validation: Multibeam (Imaging) Sonars
May – December 2020
The Pathway Program - Data Automation: Passive Acoustic Monitoring Devices
May – September 2020
The objective of this project is to define a new, enhanced power purchase agreement (PPA) for use by NSPI or an independent procurement administrator when contracting with Independent (e.g., renewable) Power Producers (IPPs).
October 2018 – September 2020
This project created a framework for testing in-stream tidal turbine effects on specific marine species populations. The framework provides the basis for future assessment of far-field and cumulative environmental effects.
July 2018 – September 2020
Electric boats have the potential to act as “energy storage wrapped in a boat”.
November 2019 – June 2020
The Pathway Program - Technology Validation: Passive Acoustic Monitoring Device
April 2017 – March 2020
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.
April – November 2018
The study investigates the feasibility of developing a generic, shared-use, multi-function turbine transport deployment and retrieval barge/drydock for use by the Nova Scotia tidal energy sector.
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.
