Lunch meeting will focus on marine renewable energies
20. februar 2018
In collaboration with Maritime Bergen, next week’s Bergen Energy Lab lunch meeting will focus on marine renewable energies. Here you will hear about how co-location of offshore wind and tidal turbines can reduce the cost of energy, and there will also be a guided tour to HVL’s 50-m long Marin Lab towing tank where future ships, maritime equipment and marine energy technologies are tested.
The lunch meeting will take place at HVL, campus Kronstad on the 20th of February from 12.15-13.15. (Room E123).
David Lande-Sudall is a Research Fellow at HVL working with marine engineering research in the 50m-long MarinLab towing tank. In this presentation, David will talk about how co-location of offshore wind and tidal stream turbines can be used as a method for reducing cost of energy from marine renewables. Limitations and challenges to exploiting these technologies will be discussed, along with opportunity for future developments. David will also use the opportunity to give a tour through the MarinLab, presenting its capabilities and highlighting how it can be used by industry and academia for model demonstration purposes.
