QED Naval, the University of Edinburgh and Scottish Association for Marine Sciences (SAMS) are being supported by the Energy Technology Partnership (ETP) to complete a resource assessment and performance modelling of a tidal turbine in the Sound of Islay.

The work involves a 3D Large Eddy Simulation model of the Sound of Islay by Edinburgh.

Velocity and turbulence parameters from this model are applied to local CFD model of the Subhub platform and the tidal turbines to provide the performance of the system at certain states of the tide. Unsteady effects will also be assessed and differential loading through the rotor cycle.

Edinburgh and SAMS will extract the tidal harmonics data from the tidal model, and this is used along with the performance data in QED’s TWEET design tool to calculate the energy yield and capacity factors for the site.

The Energy Technology Partnership has secured funding from the European Commission’s European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) as a contribution towards the support provided to eligible projects.

Offshore Energy Exhibition and Conference (OEEC) 2019

Offshore Energy Exhibition and Conference (OEEC) is where the energy transition takes place. It is Europe’s leading gathering of the entire offshore energy industry and your opportunity to network with highly qualified experts and professionals across global markets.

For more than 12 years OEEC is unique in bringing together the offshore energy industry sectors oil & gas, offshore wind and marine energy. More than 550 exhibitors from around the world present their newest services, projects and innovative products. On top of this OEEC presents international trade missions, pavilions, exclusive network lounges of the OEEC member club, the Startup Zone, matchmaking areas, the Stage and networking drinks. Approximately 12,000 professionals will visit the exhibition, take part in strategic discussions, immersive technical conference sessions focusing on the future and technical developments in the industry. Three days of networking and together shaping the future of energy.

So the question is not if but how you will be participating at Offshore Energy 2019.
