WE DESIGN, BUILD, MAINTAIN & OPERATE TURNKEY TIDAL ENERGY SYSTEMS
Our tidal platforms can be deployed anywhere in the world.
We work with partners who have local knowledge of their waters, regulations and requirements, and an in-depth understanding of the local energy markets, needs and opportunities, to develop profitable projects that can provide a range benefits to coastal and island communities.
Energy output from tidal power generators is predictable.
These benefits include long-term and sustainable employment opportunities, increased resilience to disruptive weather events that are occurring with increasing frequency due to our changing climate, improved access to energy and energy independence, and enhanced security and predictability of supply from a non-polluting and renewable source.
As part of our turnkey solutions, our services begin with site surveying and evaluation.
We then customize our PLAT-I platform to suit the location; we can vary the size of the platform to accommodate a range of turbine and rotor configurations.
Our engineering team understands the key variables that impact system costs and performance. Matching the appropriate platform technology to the conditions that are experienced at a site is critical to the delivery of a successful project.
