Device Testing
Scale Test •Extensive Tow Testing
Lab Test •Extensive blade testing including CFD and FEA prior to installation
Full-Scale Test •A five day tow testing program was conducted off the coast of Singapore and involved the mobilisation of the 20 tonne horizontal axis turbine seven meters in diameter and eight meters in length on a flat top barge pulled by two ocean going tugs The turbine was constructed based on Atlantis s Solon turbine performance model
