About MARINCOMP

“Novel Composite Materials and Processes for Offshore Renewable Energy” (MARINCOMP) (Grant no: 612531) is a European Commission, Marie Curie 7th Framework Programme funded Project, under the Industry Academia Partnerships and Pathways (IAPP) call: FP7-People-2013-IAPP.

MARINCOMP aims to reduce the cost of offshore wind and tidal turbine blades and enable the drive toward lower cost per kilowatt renewable energy for both industries.

MARINCOMP present paper at ICCM20

 

MARINCOMP Researcher & PhD Candidate James Maguire presented his paper entitled "RESIN CHARACTERISATION FOR NUMERICAL MODELLING OF THROUGH-THICKNESS RESIN FLOW DURING OOA PROCESSING OF THICK-SECTION WIND OR TIDAL TURBINE BLADES" at the 20th International Conference on Composite Materials (ICCM20). The conference was held in Copenhagen, Denmark between 19-24 July
