The international project partners have reached an agreement for the long-term demonstration of MAKO Tidal Turbines’ clean energy technology in Singapore.

The demonstration of MAKO turbines will start in the spring of 2019 at a demonstration site provided by Sentosa Development Corporation, according to project partner NYK.

MAKO tidal turbines will be installed under the Sentosa Boardwalk, the bridge between the Singapore mainland and the island of Sentosa, for a two-year period.

During the trials, the developers will examine the power generation efficiency, cost of power generation, and storage options, NYK said.

The demonstration – sponsored by MAKO and Sentosa Development Corporation – will involve the collaboration of Ocean Works Asia, MTI, NYK Group, ClassNK, Temasek Polytechnic, and Nanyang Technological University.

To remind, MAKO recently deployed its tidal turbine for testing at the Port of Gladstone in Australia’s north-east state of Queensland.

As part of the six-month trial, the MAKO.7 turbine has been in at a working port to demonstrate how tidal flows at the ports can be harnessed to produce clean electricity.
