Tocardo to Demonstrate T2 Tidal Array at EMEC

Tocardo has signed a contract during ICOE to demonstrate a 20 year pre-commercial array at the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) in Orkney. 

Tocardo plans to install eight T2 turbines across two Tocardo systems at EMEC’s grid-connected tidal test site at the Fall of Warness, off Eday, Orkney. Installation is scheduled to begin in 2017.

Hans van Breugel, Tocardo’s CEO said: “The EMEC project is a breakthrough for Tocardo’s careful roll out of our technology moving from near inshore towards offshore. With multiple turbines operational in low, moderate and extreme high tidal flows we now feel comfortable to go offshore. The EMEC opportunity will boost the implementation of Tocardo’s commercial roll out. Tocardo is pleased to be back in Scotland and looking forward for a long and lasting partnership with EMEC.”

Neil Kermode, EMEC’s Managing Director said: “It’s fantastic to see Tocardo entering the Scottish market. The tidal array they will deploy at EMEC will act as a stepping stone towards commercial deployments, and we’re delighted to be working with Tocardo towards that future.”
