Project Details The TidalStream Turbine concept was successfully tested over the course of a few months on a 1.5m diameter model in the Thames at Chiswick, UK. This test established that the buoyancy support concept works well, and can be controlled to successfully position the the turbine in its installation, operational, and maintenance positions. It was also demonstrated that the stall-regulated rotor runs stably on a flexible trailing arm and extracts power from the stream.
