Products > Tidal turbines
The technology is developed from long experience of modern technology used in wind mills, subsea oil & gas production and in hydro-power plants. The technology has been thoroughly tested and has experienced regularity in delivering electricity to the power grid.
|1. The water current is driving the turbine. The power is optimised by regulating the pitch of the blades||2. The power is converted to electricity in the nacelle (production module) The nacelle contains control system, gear box and generator||3. The electrical power is transmitted onshore by means of a subsea cable|
Renewable energy is becoming an increasingly important energy source. Renewable energy sources include wind, wave, tidal, hydro and solar power among the others. Tidal power has a significant advantage over most of the others in that, it is predictable. Due to the link with the lunar cycle the tidal currents can be predicted years in advance. There are reasons to believe that tidal power will be a significant part of the renewable energy mix.
Some benefits of the tidal power:
