Technology

With a simple and patented solution, Tidetec optimises the technology of two-way hydro turbines

The Tidetec concept is the most logical way to harness two-way hydropower, such as tidal, in the most cost effective way possible. The concept uses proven technology for all components.

Most tidal power plants today generate power only in one direction. Projected, next-generation tidal plants with two-way production have sub-optimal production.

Tidetec technology improves efficiency by 11-22% of the most cost effective tidal turbine technology by obtaining optimal efficiency both ways. This is achieved by integrating the turbine into a rotating turret. The turning mechanism is patented, and has received international recognition.

The technology enables optimal turbine function (generation and pumping) with bi-directional flow. Tidetec’s technology consists of three main technology components; The turret with a turning mechanism, turbine and caisson. Tidetec’s core competence lies in the integration of these components.
