The Netherlands: Airborne Composites Constructs Tocardo's Composite Blades

Airborne Composites announced that Tocardo International has recently granted Airborne Composites the “preferred supplier” status for the Tocardo composite blades. A first set of blades is now under construction for a challenging overseas project and more blades will follow soon for world wide supply.

Airborne has the vision and goal to design, engineer and manufacture the best optimized functional blades of the tidal industry. With this agreement in place, both parties strengthen their positions in order to become a world class player in the new emerging market of tidal energy.

In 2011 first contacts were made between Airborne Composites and Tocardo International. This involved the discussion about the design, engineering and manufacturing of the Tocardo composite tidal blades for her in-stream river and tidal energy device.

Tocardo International, a young and ambitious water turbine company is based in The Netherlands and is to become a world-wide operating and leading player in the tidal industry. Tocardo International has identified Airborne Composites with their excellent experience and composite know-how as a unique company that could achieve their challenging task of design, engineer and manufacture reliable and robust composite blades for her innovative tidal energy technology.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
