The Sea Urchin Vortex Turbine from MAKO Tidal Turbines
Michael Urch from MAKO Tidal Turbines tells us about their Sea Urchin Vortex Tubine for producing power using tidal currents. The Sea Urchin is the only marine turbine that is scalable from 1kW to 20MW. The system is suitable for use in both tidal rivers and ocean currents. Using the tides as a source of renewable energy also provides the advantage over other renewable energy sources such as solar, wind and wave, in that they are intermittent, so the Sea urchin can provide more predictable power.
