Axial Flow Turbine
Technology Description The Bluetec platform is a unified floating support structure which can hold any type of turbines in any water depth. It offers waterproof housing for vulnerable systems above the waterline unique in the tidal industry. Power cables are connected dry rather than under water, reducing risks and costs significantly. The Bluetec structure is much lighter than the gravity based designs requiring less tonnage steel per MW. The device itself is floating and therefore installation can be executed with widely available vessels without the need for expensive floating cranes or jack ups.
