Geoffrey Hunt Associates
Geoffrey Hunt Associates Ltd is a Northwest SME technology design and project management company involved in a number of advanced engineering research and development projects including developments within the renewable energy market.
Geoffrey Hunt Associates Ltd approached the VEC to help in the development and provide early stage modelling and simulation to accelerate the design phase of its current tidal energy project to and to support its business case for further investment funding.
Using in-house modelling and simulation software and expertise, the VEC provided an understanding of the key design parameters and calculated the performance of the turbine. A visualisation of the turbine working within its environment was produced enabling communication of the design in an easily understandable format and enabling progression of the development to the next stage.
Benefits from working with the VEC have been new research and development funding – very good results. The work produced will enable the project to proceed to the next level.
