Marine Renewable Energies

Offshore renewables projects offer promising sources of clean energy.

Various offshore technologies have emerged to generate electricity:

  • current and tidal turbines,
  • wave energy converters,
  • ocean thermal energy conversion,
  • fixed and floating offshore wind turbines.

Tidal turbines, wave energy converters and ocean thermal energy converters produce electricity by harnessing the power of tidal streams, waves and temperature gradients whereas wind turbines use the wind’s kinetic energy.

All these installations are complex and each site has its specific characteristics, often with many stakeholders involved in the approval process. Their number is set to multiply.

Designer or an operator involved in marine energy, are now facing the challenge to demonstrate that these technologies are safe, and offer strong quality and reliability.

Tecnitas provides can support these projects by providing a wide range of services:
