TIGER | SEA TECH WEEK Webinar 3: Supply Chain Opportunities

Loading Events

You are invited to join the third in a series of six supply chain seminar events as part of the TIGER project.

The theme is ‘Growing the supply chain for cost effective reliable composite blades, tooling and sensor design for tidal turbines.’

The webinar will bring 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 salt water environments. The TIGER project is looking to bring cross-sector supply chain capability and innovation into the development of world leading tidal energy projects.

This event will hear about the needs of leading tidal energy deployments and will be followed by a session on emerging technology and supply chain innovations from across different sectors with similar needs.

  • The event will be hosted in the framework of SEA TECH WEEK and facilitated by Morbihan Hydro Energie
