Tocardo International has developed an solution which fulfils these requirements.

The objective of the InToTidal project is to execute the last step of the develop and demonstration of an integrated and generic solution for offshore tidal energy production, making it ready for successful commercial business application. The system will be tested and demonstrated in this project, while the resulting system will be used for long term testing after the project.

Tocardo formed a strong consortium with EMEC, Infremer and LEASK Marine to be able to make this project a success.
