San Bernardino Strait Hydrodynamic Modeling for yield assessment and optimization

Date: July 06, 2018 at 17:26 GMT

SABELLA and H&B plan to develop Southeast Asian first ocean power plant which will power up off-grid areas in Capul island in San Bernardino Strait in Philippines. This work presents the hydrodynamic modeling in San Bernardino strait, an effort aiming to support the choice of the best site for the tidal stream power turbines. The hydrodynamic model is based on a high resolution bathymetry for the specific areas of interest as well as three ADCP measurements, both high valuable datasets for model set-up and calibration.
