Together with our customer Tocardo, Solico developed, engineered and delivered a total of 6 sets tidal turbine blades. The blades vary in size from 2.5m to 4.5m. Holland Composites produced the turbine blades in close collaboration with Solico.

Customer: Tocardo Tidal Turbines, Holland Composites Industrials

Tidal Blades

On November 26, 2015 the first tidal energy plant in the Dutch Eastern Scheldt was officially opened.

Why are composites used here?

Freedom of geometry
Double curved shapes are easily produced in composite materials at almost no extra cost. For production of limited series the relatively low moulding costs are an additional benefit.

High strength
In general, fiber reinforced plastics outperform metals (e.g. steel and aluminium) in strength.
