VIDEO: 3D Animation of HS1000 Tidal Turbine

ANDRITZ HYDRO Hammerfest delivers tidal turbine arrays and services to harness the great energy potential from tidal streams. The modular solutions are designed to allow optimal integration in the daily operation plans of the customers, supporting the worldwide energy mix.

The video shows 3D animation of HS1000 tidal turbine successfully deployed at EMEC’s tidal test site in December 2011.

The HS1000 turbine is based on the technology of a smaller turbine, the HS300, which was installed in Norway as the first ever tidal current turbine with permanent connection to the public grid in 2004. The prototype has been in operation for more than 17,000 hours, delivering over 1.5 GWh to the grid and showed 98% availability during testing.

Based on the testing period, ANDRITZ HYDRO Hammerfest will further develop the technology and plan to deploy a 10 MW commercial array in the Sound of Islay.
