    The down-scaled 1:6 test model met the full scale extreme weather and sank during extreme storm “Berit”. This extreme wave height combined with a storm surge (high water level) caused water to enter into the tower through the inlet pipe for the power cable (the J-tube) causing the tower to fill with water. The J-tube […]

    The down-scaled 1:6 test model met full scale extreme weather and probably sank during last night’s extreme storm “Berit”. Once the turbine has been located and recovered the time to repair it will be assessed. Even though the effect of the extreme storm “Berit” would not be a problem for a full scale turbine this […]
