  • Seen here is an array of three twin turbine tidal current energy installations with the center installation raised for maintenance

  • Probable Project LocationsWestern PassageCastine Harbor/Bagaduce NarrowsSource:http://www.skypic.com Source: http://apollo.ogis.state.me.us/maps/Potential Tidal Power Generation in Maine* Data obtained from a 2006 EPRI TISEC project report

  • Tidal Turbine Test ApparatusOBJECTIVE: To develop re-applicable Power Curves of scaled down models of Tidal Turbines. Dynamometer for Drag Force on the TurbineApparatus Housing of instrumentationAPPARATUS The apparatus will be bolted underneath the movable carriage to model tidal flow past the turbine in the 100 Wave Tank.Streamlined KeelVISION: To complete the ground work necessary to begin Tidal Turbine research for application as an alternative energy source in the State of Maine

  • TEST SETUPShown here is a rendering of a turbine prototype in the tow tank (minus the carriage)
