EC-OG to optimize Subsea Power Hub with OGTC support

East Coast Oil and Gas Engineering (EC-OG) has teamed up with the Oil & Gas Technology Centre (OGTC) for the optimization of its hybrid device based the ocean current energy conversion system with integrated energy storage. The two parties will undertake a FEED study for its Subsea Power Hub to advance design, deployment procedures, and de-risking of the installation and operational phases for the device.

Tidal prototype generates power off Japan

Tidal energy device, deployed off the coast of Kuchinoshima island in Japan, has reportedly produced 60kW of tidal power during its demonstration trials which took place earlier in August. The 100kW floating device has been developed by IHI Corporation and New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO).

Schottel lines up tidal blades for PLAT-I delivery

Schottel Hydro is finalizing the preparations for the delivery of four of its SIT 250 tidal turbines to Sustainable Marine Energy for the PLAT-I tidal platform, after having conducted successful factory acceptance testing on their power take-off (PTO) and containerized power conversion systems. The PLAT-I will be deployed for trials in Connel Sound, off the coast of Strathylde in Scotland, later this year.

Canadian tidal power could create over 100K construction jobs

The Columbia Institute has released a study which predicts that that the construction of new tidal and wave energy generation facilities could bring significant job opportunities for the Canadian construction industry by 2050. The study states that building out 5% of Canada’s power grid with tidal and wave energy generation facilities would create 109,770 construction jobs.

Seals see no ‘barrier’ in SeaGen tidal turbine

A new study, conducted by SMRU Consulting with the Sea Mammal Research Unit, has found that the presence of SeaGen tidal turbine in Strangford Lough, Northern Ireland, did not prevent harbor seals from passing through the channel, detecting only small effects in their movement associated with the device. The research was commissioned due to concerns about the risk to seals posed by operating tidal turbines.
