Four Tidal Energy Research Projects Funded
The Offshore Energy Research Association of Nova Scotia (OERA) has recently funded four (4) tidal energy research projects under their Open Call Program. OERA awards a maximum of $20,000 on its various Open Call Projects, where such funds are leveraged with financial support from others to cover the total project costs. The following are the most recent winners:
"Measuring the acoustic detection range of large whales using an autonomous underwater (Slocum) ocean glider to improve an acoustic whale alert system for use by the offshore marine industry in Atlantic Canada"
"Finite Element Analysis to assess fish mortality from interactions with tidal turbine blades"
"Real-time particle acceleration/particle velocity (PA/PV) measurement system evaluation in a tidal environment"
"Wake Characterization of an operational tidal turbine"
