TIGER Webinar 3: Growing the supply chain for cost effective reliable composite blades, tooling and sensor design for tidal turbines documents
The third in a series of six supply chain seminar events as part of the TIGER project.
The webinar was held on 13 October 2020 and focused on growing the supply chain for cost effective reliable composite blades, tooling and sensor design for tidal turbines.
This two-hour session brings together tidal turbine developers, academics and suppliers who are at the forefront of research and industrial innovation in the field of composite technologies for use in harsh saltwater environments. The TIGER project is looking to bring cross-sector supply chain capability and innovation into the development of world leading tidal energy projects.
