MONITOR & TIGER projects joint webinar on modelling reliability for tidal turbines

Event Date:
Start at 12:00 AM
February 24, 2021

You are invited to join a tidal reliability webinar, hosted by the MONITOR project in collaboration with TIGER.

This event will focus on improvements to reliability modelling for tidal turbines, drawing on numerical and laboratory models, as well as real case studies.
