Norwegian tidal energy developer, Tidetec, has concluded the two-month long testing of its prototype tidal device.

The device was lifted from the seabed in Svelvik, Norway, yesterday, November 15, after being deployed on the site since September.

The device has worked without any technical issues during the full test period, Tidetec informed.

“The prototyping has given us valuable engineering experience and data, and we are very proud that the project went according to plan,” Tidetec said.

The trials were focused on turning application testing, and the method of turning the device, not the turbine itself.

The full size application of Tidetec technology is intended for barrage and tidal lagoon power plants.
