The advantages of composite material in marine renewable energy structures

M. Mohan – RINA Marine Renewable Energy Conference, 2008


Composite materials can have many advantages when they are used in marine renewable energy structures. These advantages will be demonstrated in this paper with an example of a 2m prototype of a C-Power Underwater Turbine that was engineered and built at Gurit using composite material. The novel design features of the turbine presented challenges to the structural engineering and will be discussed in this paper.
