Floating tidal device set for Orkney

Dutch offshore energy company, Bluewater Energy Services, has secured a tidal demonstration berth at the Fall of Warness tidal test site for demonstration of its floating tidal energy converter, BlueTEC.

Bluewater has successfully completed its development and design phase including model testing and is now ready to enter the market with a full scale demonstration unit.

Tidal energy is in its early stages of development. While most tidal developers concentrate on the development of turbines, Bluewater says it has developed a solution to install and maintain these turbines in the oceans at the lowest possible cost.
