The NEMMO project team has recently published novel composite material solutions to enhance the resistance of tidal turbine blades. Key test results are presented along with an outline description of the methodologies adopted. This study focuses on three parallel approaches adopted to enhance blade material performance.
This research helps the NEMMO project reach its ambitious targets to drive down maintenance costs due to cavitation wear, bio-fouling and ageing, and to enhance hydrodynamic performance.
