Tidal Turbine Collision Detection

Partners:

Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult (OREC)

Start date:

June 2015

Duration:

Until October 2015

Project abstract

This collaborative project between CENSIS and the Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult delivered a review of the state-of-the-art sensors and imaging systems for detecting marine mammal collisions with tidal turbines.

The review identified current practice in tidal turbine collision risk technologies and explored where existing systems could be improved further optimised. Newly emerging, close to market sensing and imaging technologies that may have feasible utility in the application were also reviewed.
