The redeployment operation of the Evopod tidal unit has begun this morning off the coast of Portugal.

The Marine Offshore Renewable Energy (MORE) team from the University of Algarve are conducting the operation at Ria Formosa, a coastal lagoon in the south of Portugal, the team informed on social media today, September 22, 2017.

The 1:10 scale Evopod unit underwent maintenance following the initial deployment in June 2017.

The operation is part of SCORE project whose goal is to examine the behavior of small-scale tidal current turbine in a shallow-water estuarine environment.

The project officially began on April 1, 2016, and will run for 36 months.

As reported earlier, the scaled Evopod E1 unit was leased by the University of Algarve from the UK-based tidal energy developer Oceanflow Energy.
