Pearson College EnCana-- Clean Current Tidal Power Demonstration Project
On Wednesday April 20/05, Chris and students Angie and Rita deployed the Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler at the second turbine location.
This unit was placed on the seabed for ASL Environmental Sciences in order to collect current regime information for a period of one month.
This information will confirm the suitability of this location as well as provide valuable current information that will be used to size the turbine generator.
