NEMMO Project Trials Blade Panels at HarshLab


first_img<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>The NEMMO project has recently installed a set of tidal turbine blade panels made from fibreglass and a gel-coat coating for testing at the HarshLab facility. The samples, taken from the current Magallanes’ turbine blade, will be submerged for six months to determine the level of biofouling on the surface. These results will then be used as a reference for the development of new blade materials and coatings.The creation of novel coatings and materials is a core part of the NEMMO project.After modelling and testing, the team will define the optimal material composition, textures and surfaces to reduce wear on the blade. The wider objective is to lower maintenance costs and increase the yield of tidal turbines, and to improve the cost-effectiveness of tidal energy overall.The Next Evolution in Materials and Models for Ocean Energy (NEMMO) project has been set up boost the competitiveness of tidal energy by optimising tidal turbine blade design and performance.The project aims to create a larger, lighter and more durable composite blade for floating tidal turbines, enabling devices to reach capacities of over 2 MW.NEMMO project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and Innovation programme.last_img read more

Kingston picks Abedi Pele as greatest African player of all-time


first_imgFormer Ghana international, Laryea Kingston, has picked countryman Abedi Ayew ‘Pele’ as the greatest African to have ever played the beautiful game. “At the Africa Cup [of Nations] and most of the games that I saw him play, even when the team is down, he lifts everyone up and makes sure the fans and everyone are happy. “So he’s the greatest. For me, I think he did very well for himself and for the country.” It was indeed an unusual root to greatness for Abedi, who first left Ghanaian club Real Tamale United (RTU) to Qatari side Al Sadd in 1982, moved to Swiss side FC Zurich, then to Beninese side Dragons l’Oueme before returning to RTU. In the 1986-87 season, the attacker left for French side Niort, from where he crossed carpets to Mulhouse. He was then snapped up by Marseille, who he represented between 1987 and 1993. He also played for French sides Lille and Lyon, Italian fold Torino, 1860 Munich in Germany and finally Al Ain in the United Arab Emirates where he retired. read also:Abedi’s son ignores January transfer speculations Abedi also won the French league twice with Marseille as well as the UAE Pro-League and President’s Cup with Al Ain. He rated fifth in the Top 30 African Footballers in the last 50 years released by the Confederation of African Football (Caf) in 2007. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… Abedi indeed has an illustrious career as he won the Africa Cup of Nations with Ghana in 1982 and the Uefa Champions League with French side Olympique Marseille in 1992-1993. At individual level, he claimed the Africa Footballer of the Year award on three occasions, one of his many personal honours. “I would say Abedi Pele is the greatest African footballer of all-time because a lot of Africans still believe in him,” Laryea, who played for Ghana at the 2006 and 2008 Afcon tournaments, told Goal. “They believe he’s one of the best players Africa has ever seen.” “In his time, he played very well and not only in Ghana. He went to France and up till today, if you go to France, especially Marseille and you mention him, he’s well known and people respect him for what he did on the field. “In Ghana too he did very well with the national team even though their time they did not qualify to be at the World Cup.
