Tidetec Puts Its Turbine to Test

Tidetec has completed installation of its tidal turbine is in the test rig at the Technical University of Munich.

The following month the turbine will be tested to show performance data, Tidetec  informed.

The performance data from the lab tests will verify the overall efficiency for these types of turbines.

In addition to increase in efficiency, the Tidetec solution is 35% lighter and has a reduced number of moving parts, the company said. The cost saving on this system compared to the Kaplan bulb are expected to be in the range of 6-9%.
