NewEnergyNews: EU’s Tidal Pilot Matches Ocean Wind Output


Gleanings from the web and the world, condensed for convenience, illustrated for enlightenment, arranged for impact...

While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

    EU’s Tidal Pilot Matches Ocean Wind Output

    Tidal energy reaches another milestone

    June 7, 2017 (European Union Community Research and Development Information Service)

    “The EU-funded FLOTEC project’s tidal turbine has now matched the performance of established offshore wind turbines, generating over 18MWh (megawatt-hour) within a continuous 24 hour testing period and heralding an age of more competitive tidal energy supply…The currents of coastal tidal waters [are amplified as they are funneled through inlets and can] provide a source of energy, exploitable by devices which function much like submerged wind turbines…Despite this potential, the industry has faced a number of [ocean environment and marine life habitat siting] challenges and so hasn't yet achieved comparable progress to other renewables, such as wind and solar…Key to FLOTEC’s operation is the SR2000 [2 MW] tidal turbine, reputed to be the largest and most powerful in the world. Designed for a twenty-year lifespan, it can be deployed in any water with depths of at least 25m…The floating platform holds two horizontal axis turbines mounted just below the sea surface…In April this year, the SR2000 reached peak power…[at the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) in Orkney, Scotland and then generated the] over 18MWh within a continuous 24 hour testing period…” click here for more
