[en] Polyurethane made profiles can be used for hydrokinetic oscillating foil micro turbines to reduce their production cost. For this purpose, a NACA 0015 profile is designed with a computer aided design software and milled from aluminium. From this sample a negative mould of silicone is produced. This negative was used to produce finally polyurethane foils. Holes and grooves can be simply implemented in the negative by placing corresponding shapes made of metal within the silicone form. A massive reduction of the production cost of about 1600 Euro for a polyurethane (PUR) foil of 1000 mm length compared to an aluminium foil of the same shape is accomplished.
