As 2020 BREXIT and a new decade begins, a wholly new European marine energy partnership is announced. QED Naval Ltd, and HydroWing are delighted to announce a new collaborative European joint venture and with it the acquisition of Holland’s premier tidal turbines business, Tocardo. This collaborative partnership brings together decades of marine-sector expertise as
Between June and November 2020, teams from Université Bretagne Sud (UBS) and Morbihan Hydro Energies carried out a series of hydrodynamic measurement campaigns and environmental characterisation of the Morbihan site in Brittany, France. From 1 May to 16 June 2020, UBS, Morbihan Hydro Energies, along with Alpha & Co deployed an Acoustic Doppler Current
Positive market signals from the UK government have ignited a partnership between two Scottish and English islands to get the infrastructure ready for commercial scale tidal energy roll out. The European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC), Orkney, Scotland, has joined forces with Perpetuus Tidal Energy Centre (PTEC) to develop a large-scale tidal energy site
Successful offshore operation for ADCP installation on Paimpol-Bréhat tidal test site, under the watchful eyes of dolphins!
A key tidal test site in the TIGER project is the Paimpol-Bréhat, located off the north coast of Brittany in France, which is operated by Electricité de France (EDF). The Paimpol-Bréhat site is at the heart of the France Channel Manche England (FCE) area, it plays a pivotal role in the tidal stream energy
David Fowler has published a report on TIGER for The Engineer: Renewable energy in the shape of wind and solar power provides an increasing share of the UK’s energy mix, reaching 40% in the third quarter of last year. So far, however, tidal power has not made significant inroads into the market. Over the
ESI Africa (Africa's Power Journal) has published an article discussing the potential for advances in ocean energy in 2020: The abundance of ocean surface makes wave and tidal energy an infinite source of clean energy. Countries across the globe have made bold declarations of their intentions to deep dive into harnessing this energy source.
Offshore Energy has published an article detailing Orbital Marine Power's search for experts to work on the TIGER project: Scottish engineering company Orbital Marine Power is looking for experts in turbine dynamic controller design as part of the Tidal Stream Industry Energiser Project, known as TIGER. In parallel to its O2-2000 turbine build, Orbital
