A GLOBAL leader in tidal technology has linked up with two Orkney-based companies in a bid to bring down the cost of renewable energy production. Dutch company Tocardo Tidal Power has burst on to the tidal scene in the UK with the InToTidal project kick-off and the arrival of Tocardo’s system in Orkney last week in preparation for its deployment at the European Marine Energy Centre’s (EMEC’s) grid-connected tidal test site. It is the start of Tocardo’s planned 20-year commercial demonstration project at EMEC’s Fall of Warness site. With the installation of the system, Tocardo is getting ready for a large scale roll-out of its generic solution for tidal energy production.

A HUGE power-generating tidal barrage providing transport links from the M6 to Barrow and Millom is one step closer to becoming a reality thanks to the latest stage of an ambitious £8bn project. The Northern Tidal Power Gateways scheme would use a series of tidal turbines to stretch around Morecambe Bay while giving motorists a long-awaited link between the M6 and Barrow and Millom. Northern Tidal Power Gateways is the brainchild of Alan Torevell, chair of Dewhurst Torevell, who has been leading the project since its inception four years ago.
