TIGER Webinar 4: Anti-fouling and anti-corrosion requirements of tidal turbines documents
The fourth in a series of six supply chain seminar events as part of the TIGER project.
The webinar took place on 21 October 2020 and focused on Anti-fouling and anti-corrosion resistance of tidal turbines and explore potential areas for collaboration to reduce maintenance costs. With the aim to accelerate the expansion and growth of the tidal energy sector, including the wider supply chain.
The event was hosted by EMEC and facilitated by Hydroquest
