Dutch engineers want to optimize these turbines and supply the station with more turbines. Enough for two thousand households

Last week. the tidal power station in the Dutch Eastern Scheldt commissioned.

From now, five water turbines supply power to the grid.

The turbines are generating enough electricity for over one thousand households. 

Energy from tides will play just a small role in the Dutch large-scale production of green power. There are only a few places where water is flowing fast enough. Yet there is room for growth. Dutch engineers want to optimize these turbines and supply the station with more turbines. Enough for two thousand households. The engineers are hoping that this first commercial power station will be the start of a new industry in the Netherlands and beyond.

Tocardo

This installation is a huge step in the development of tidal power. Our Tocardo tidal technology has the potential to grow into a major Dutch export product. Exports expectation of tidal power is more than 200 gigawatts.

With these turbines in the Oosterschelde barrier, we will show the world what the power of tidal energy: a clean and reliable energy source that can provide in 10 to 20% of the world’s electricity needs.

For the first 100 MW, the costs of energy from water are about € 0.18 / kWh. In future, Tocardo thinks this sector can supply green energy for € 0.07 / kWh.
