Engineers working on the development of Bourne Tidal Test Site (BTTS) in Massachusetts have been field testing a simulation of the data acquisition system that will be installed on the actual tidal turbine test structure.

Black Rock Tidal Power (BRTP), a Schottel Hydro company, has once again pushed back the deployment of its Triton tidal energy platform in the Bay of Fundy for another year.

The objective of the study, conducted by Ecorys and Fraunhofer IWES, was to point out failures and good practices/lessons learnt in ocean energy technology development in Europe in relation to tidal and wave energy.

Black Rock Tidal Power (BRTP) has undertaken a design review of its Triton tidal energy platform planned for deployment in the Bay of Fundy in Canada

The project, dubbed Tidal Energy in Australia – Assessing Resource and Feasibility in Australia’s Future Energy Mix, will create an online atlas mapping tidal energy nationwide to the nearest 500 meters. It will also involve a full feasibility study of two high potential sites, and modelling of existing tidal energy devices at these sites.
