Evopodô Technology Reaches Landmark
An important milestone in the development of Oceanflow’s
technology was reached on the 6th of March 2011 with the demonstration of grid connectivity by the Company’s 1:10th scale trials unit in Strangford Narrows Northern Ireland, using our innovative midwater buoy solution. The output from the floating tethered tidal turbine can now be fed into the domestic mains circuit of the
Queen's University Marine Laboratory
Oceanflow’s patent protected midwater buoy solution is an essential element in the transmission of power from the free floating, semi-submerged
to the subsea power export cable. Performance data from the midwater buoy and its mooring and power export system will assist
in the design of its larger 35kW unit to be deployed in Scottish waters later this year.
