Rockland and Dalhousie University researchers combine to develop solutions for turbulence measurement at in-stream tidal power sites.

The need for improved knowledge of turbulence statistics in tidal energy generation has led to a trans-Canadian collaboration between British Columbia-based Rockland Scientific International (RSI) and the Ocean Acoustics Laboratory (OAL) at Nova Scotia’s Dalhousie University to develop advanced techniques for turbulence measurements at turbine ‘hub height’.These new techniques will be traceable to a laboratory standard for turbulence measurement.
