CNR-INSEAN and SAFREMA ENERGY signed a cooperation agreement for the development of tidal hydrokinetics system. This is a follow up of an ongoing project finalized in the design of advanced hydrodynamic components to be used on an innovative 1 MW vertical axis ocean stream-tidal turbine. The agreement is a framework of 5 years duration that will support the design, from the scaled model validation to the full scale turbine. CNR-INSEAN will develop advanced computational tools and model testing in its large facilities. For this purpose the Institute has put together a team of scientist and researcher to facilitate the advanced SAFREMA project. Furthermore SAFREMA ENERGY will support the research with awards for the most outstanding students and research grants for young researchers.
