Bi-Directional Tidal Turbine Concept Complete

We have been heavily involved in the conceptual stage of a new type of novel energy conversion device for tidal flows. In particular, the bi-directional nature of tidal flows has inspired the use of twin contra-rotating rotors that are able to accept tidal fluid flow in either direction.

The development of this device has progressed rapidly from feasibility stage to concept development. Experimental validation of the tidal turbine is planned for Jun 2013 at Marintek in Norway.
