Work Package 2. Manufacture, Procurement & Assembly

Objectives:

The objective of this work package is to produce a prototype pitch system to the design generated in WP1.

A further objective is to produce the VPS to a verified high-quality standard.  The inaccessibility of tidal turbines when they are installed, and the cost of retrieving them if maintenance is required, means that they must have the highest reliability.

Deliverables:

  • 1 Inspection reports and photos for completed hub machining, pintles, nosecone.
  • 2 FAT test documentation for slipring, electrical drive system, and actuation system.
  • 3 Goods received inspection reports.
  • 4 Assembled VPS, as-built drawings, photos and assembly report.
