Sustainable Marine adopts German Aerospace and Wind Energy Technology to advance Tidal Turbine Blades

Together with our partners from  and  we started the project #EVOFoil optimizing the performance of tidal turbine foils for renewable #TidalEnergy, financed by the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi). Our research is focused on a new material concept to improve the mechanical behavior of the foil to counteract the various loads under seawater conditions. This implicates the adoption of the hybrid technology #Multilayer-Insert to enable the load carrying areas of the foil to be partially reinforced with thin metallic sheets, improving adaption to the turbine drive shaft boosting durability and strength.
