Schottel Hydro Supplies Turbines for SME’s PLAT-O

Schottel Hydro will deliver 16 Schottel Instream Turbines (SIT) with a capacity of 62 kW each to Sustainable Marine Energy (SME) over the next two years.

The SME’s PLAT-O platform array will host 16 Schottel Instream Turbines. Following the sea trials in the Solent in summer 2015, the first PLAT-O system, which hosts two SIT, will be installed at EMEC in 2016. The next generation PLAT-O system will host four turbines each. Four of these platforms will be deployed in 2016/ 2017 to complete the array.

The scope of supply also includes the power electrics for the turbines and the interface management between turbines and platform.

With this system we offer SME a simple “plug and play” solution for their PLAT-O platforms. We are very proud to be part of this project with 16 SIT turbines sold. The PLAT-O system provides Schottel Hydro with a route to market and we expect to deliver many more SITs to SME for these systems in the near future.” says Niels A. Lange, Managing Director of Schottel Hydro.

“It is great to be working with Schottel Hydro to deliver an integrated system to the market. This multi turbine array, the first of its kind in the world, will prove that tidal energy devices can be installed in a low cost manner and operated profitably over the long term,” says Jason Hayman, Managing Director of SME.

“Commercially viable tidal energy has arrived with this integrated solution from SME and Schottel Hydro,” he added.
