About the talk

Building on the experience of the SeaGen 1.2MW tidal turbine installed in Strangford Lough in 2008, over the past year Marine Current Turbines (MCT) has undertaken an intense programme to develop a 2.0MW tidal turbine that is suitable for deployment in the commercial arrays planned for installation in 2015. The talk will discuss some of the challenges of designing robust industrial turbines that are required for the commercial success of this emerging market.
