Tocardo Gets Ofgem Accreditation for 1.4 MW at EMEC

Tocardo Tidal Power has obtained Ofgem accreditation under the Renewables Obligation (RO) scheme for its 1.4MW EMEC deployment.

Tocardo has installed its Temporary Foundation System (TFS) in Orkney earlier this year.

The deployment was the start of the Tocardo’s planned 20-year commercial demonstration project at EMEC’s Fall of Warness tidal test site.

The next deployments are foreseen in Wales and Canada at the FORCE and Petit Passage locations, the company noted.

Hans van Breugel, CEO of Tocardo Tidal Power: “We are very pleased the project has been granted. With this accreditation under this renewable support scheme for the EMEC project, a commercial business case has been secured.”
