Tidal Energy

It has been long recognised that in the seas and oceans vast quantities of energy are present. The energy is in the waves, tides and ocean currents. Argyll is currently focusing on tidal and ocean current energy recovery using completely submerged multi-axis hydro turbines comprising of rotor blades and a generator.

In normal operation the turbine axis will be close to horizontal although any angle of the horizontal axis will work. The three bladed 10m diameter turbine units will be capable of extracting Mega Watts of power at flow speeds greater than 3 knots.

Argyll International has developed a unique tidal turbine that has the potential to harvest safe and renewable sources of electricity from the waters around Scotland.
