Flow Enhancing Hull Form

  • Subhub boosts power output by accelerating the tidal flows into the rotor.
  • The acceleration of the flow is also apparent in the outboard tidal turbines.
  • Up to 50% increase in energy yield in site assessments (site and turbine dependent).
  • The¬†hull structure contains the solid ballast required to anchor the turbines to the seabed.
  • Grid ready electricity is provided by the electrical conditioning equipment housed within the pressure hull.
