Designcraft blades help Scotrenewables SR2000 reach peak power

Designcraft are pleased to be the rotor supplier on Scotrenewables SR2000 tidal device. This is the world's most powerful tidal turbine and has now reached peak power of 2 MW at The European Marine Energy Centre in Orkney.

The device has 2 rotors 4 blades in total. The Blades designed and built to withstand the toughest of environments and reflect Designcraft's reputation for building robust and reliable composite structures.

Designcraft worked with Scotrenewables on the blade design, manufactured all rotor tooling in house and developed infusion techniques for production manufacture of these highly loaded composite blades.

These rotors demonstrate the capability of Designcraft to take complex projects in composite materials from initial design to successful deployment. We wish Scotrenewables every success with this device and those that follow it.
