In contrast to well-known tidal power plants, our tidal power plant is very inexpensive to manufacture and maintain.
Creatures that swim through (seals, whales and fish) are not injured due to the arrangement of the flaps and the low rotation speed. (could be proven on the Faroe Islands by video surveillance)
Unfortunately, the European test center for tidal power plants in Greverlingendamm (Netherlands) is still not finished, so we cannot get the necessary validations for our plant.
Tidal power as the basis of energy supply
A sustainable, i.e. unlimited and emission-free energy supply can only be built on the basis of the so-called renewable energy sources sun, wind and water.
Hydropower can be used as an energy source in rivers or in ocean currents and there, above all, in tides.
The water power bound in sea currents or tides contains a multiple of energy potential compared to river courses.
A new life-size tidal power plant
In June 2014, our first tidal power plant of the completely new, patent-protected Atlantisstrom type was tested on the Faroe Islands and has already been connected to the public grid for test purposes.
In contrast to the well-known prototypes of tidal power plants, our rotor type neither endangers the fauna nor hinders shipping and also convinces with its low costs. Because it is a completely new, patented resistance runner.
A new concept for an economical use of tidal power
Recently, some prototype plants have been built using tidal power to generate electricity. Most of these systems work on the principle of conventional wind turbines. However, most of these systems can only use one direction of flow and are very expensive to manufacture and maintain.
Our system, which is probably the only one in the world, can use both the incoming and outgoing tidal currents completely automatically and without an external control system and can generate electricity practically continuously except for the tide change
