Debate: Drivetrain Decisions – To Gear or Not to Gear?

The choice of drivetrain technology is a critical decision for optimising performance and cost-efficiency of tidal devices. Should tidal turbines use a direct drivetrain, bypassing the gearbox for simplicity and reliability, or opt for an indirect drivetrain with a gearbox to optimise speed and torque? Find that out in this debate!
