FastBlade is the world’s first test facility that uses regenerative hydraulic technology to offer high-quality, low-cost fatigue testing of tidal blades and other composites structures for research and product development.
The tour will show the testing equipment, instrumentation, and hydraulic system, along with a tidal blade specimen. Unfortunately for health and safety reasons FastBlade will not able to run demo’s of the facility carrying out a test.
Delegates will be split into 4 groups with each tour lasting approx. 1.5 – 2 hours. Please note this tour is expected to finish at approx. 16:30 – 17:00 hrs. This tour includes a transfer to Edinburgh airport afterwards. A small fee of £25 will be charged.
