Bakker Sliedrecht, Water2Energy to Deliver Tidal Turbines

Bakker Sliedrecht and Water2Energy have signed a technical development partnership to deliver new water turbines.

The vertical axis water turbine (VAWT) that Water2Energy has developed is 30 to 50% more efficient than traditional water turbines, the company said.

Bakker Sliedrecht has created a smart system for the turbines that delivers the electrical power to the grid.

The VAWT is proven to be safe for aquatic life and eco systems. The open structure of the turbine allow fish to swim through easily, the company noted.

Jeffrey Gadellaa, manager Innovation, Marketing, and Communication at Bakker Sliedrecht said: “We are truly excited about the partnership with Water2Energy. The high efficient water turbines offer governments and businesses worldwide the possibility to embrace this form of sustainable energy. This strategy is in line with our focus on electrical installations within the sustainable energy sector.”

Reinier J. Rijke, general manager at Water2Energy said: “Tidal energy is a type of sustainable energy that is very predictable, very reliable, and always available on set moments thanks to the fixed intervals of tides and currents. Now, with the partnership with Bakker Sliedrecht the conversion ratio between of mechanical energy to electrical energy has improved significantly. This makes tidal energy an even more attractive type of sustainable energy.”
