The Structural Sensor Installed on the Vertical Guide Posts

Announcement Date: October 1, 2017

The structural sensors on the Vertical Guide Posts (VGP) of the Tidal Turbine Platform System (TTPS) were installed in October 2017. The collected data will be used to a) verify design assumptions for the TTPS mounted on the bridge pier cap, and b) compare the strains predicted by the numerical models with the collected strains to support operational decision-making guides for the operating tidal turbine.
