Hydrodynamic modelling of floating tidal turbine

Development of a SR2000 2MW floating tidal turbine required development of hydrodynamic modelling techniques. Our modelling engineers adapted standard oil & gas and wind industry tools and techniques to develop an iterative process for floating tidal combining Orcaflex’s capability to model floating structures, and FAST’s capabilities of modelling rotor hydrodynamics.
