Development of the Test Rig

After a few months of engineering, testing of the Turbine and Test Platform has taken place in Clevedon Marine Lake!


A moment of trepidation before the test of floating the Test platform


The test underway! Pipes of dimension 4×1 were used as more buoyancy was required compared to using the original smaller 2×1 pipes.
As well as this an additional 1.5kg of weight (the water bottles) was added. Red tape was used to get a reading of the water line as it floated.

Manually testing the drivetrain prior to attaching it to the floating platform.


The drivetrain now attached to the floating platform.
