Tidal Deployment

Tidal deployment has the following benefits

  • Already an established and expanding sector in the renewable energy market
  • A predictable and reliable global source of energy
  • An assured, affordable and non-polluting alternative for island communities currently using diesel generators
  • Huge global tidal stream potential as shown on the slide below

Medium-scale surface deployment of SmartStream offers:

  • A simple barge mooring system for station keeping
  • Surface mounting, more suitable for deep, fast-flowing rivers or tidal sites so the turbine is higher in the water column giving a high flow speed and therefore generating more power
  • A second row of turbines can be added if the barge is large enough, thus further increasing power output

SmartStream is the ideal system to deploy for hydro-generated electricity. Why Us?
