Client: Jesmond Engineering
Project: Optimising tidal turbine design for improved performance


“Digital Engineering has proven to be an invaluable CFD design partner for a number of our projects. They have been able to deliver accurate results, on time and at a competitive price. Their input has added real value to each project we’ve worked on and I look forward to working with them again in the future.”

Simon Walker, CEO of Jesmond Engineering

Jesmond Engineering is a Yorkshire-based engineering consultancy, specialising in the provision of structural analysis. The company commissioned Digital Engineering in relation to the hydro-dynamic design of a vertical axis tidal turbine for one if its clients. The turbine was underperforming based on its experts calculations and they wanted a second opinion.

We applied our tidal design expertise to analyse the problem. We met all of their design requirements and the outcome was a performance improvement on the existing design of a factor of 5.
