Because there’s not yet a standardized, optimal way of extracting power from tidal currents, many tidal industry technologies are currently being tested around the world. The Testing of a New Turbine Blade Design and Blade Materials project used Canada’s largest university aquatic research facility – Dalhousie University’s Aquatron – to demonstrate the potential of a new hydrokinetic tidal turbine design.
