The paper written by Tanguy Leroux, Nick Osbourne, Justine McMillan, Dominic Groulx and Alex Hay and titled: "Numerical Modelling of a Tidal Turbine Behaviour under Realistic Unsteady Tidal Flow" was awarded the 2nd place for Best Paper of the conference.

Two papers were presented by Dominic at the 3rd Asian Wave and Tidal Energy Conference held in Singapore
October 24-28, 2016

The papers presented were: "Numerical Modelling of a Three-Bladed NREL S814 Tidal Turbine" and "Numerical Modelling of a Tidal Turbine Behaviour under Realistic Unsteady Tidal Flow".

OERA grant awarded to the LAMTE and researchers in Oceanography
January 6, 2016

A $25,000 grant was awarded from OERA for the numerical study of the impact of representative transient flow on tidal turbines. The LAMTE is collaborating with Dr. Alex Hay's research group in Oceanography on this project.

Dominic participated in the first Australian Ocean Renewable Energy Symposium in Melbourne
October 18-20, 2016

He presented a talk titled "Numerical Study into a Horizontal Tidal Turbine Wake Velocity Deficit".
