ABOUT THE PROJECT
TideTec is a Norwegian tidal company focused on developing the most efficient and flexible turbine technology for tidal barrage/lagoon and flood protection systems. TideTec holds several patents for state of the art tidal turbines and construction of tidal power plants.
Tidetecs concept is to turn a tidal turbine 180 degrees in a turret between tidal cycles to optimize energy production of a tidal energy power plant. Tidal turbines are normally optimized for one-way production, so being able to turn the turbine according to the tidal cycles, will result in an efficiency gain of 8%.
