Rolls-Royce Takes Stake in Tidal Power Project

Thursday, April 24, 2008

Rolls-Royce is continuing to invest in renewable energy sources by taking a 23.5 per cent equity stake in TGL, a privately-owned company developing free stream tidal power generation capability.
Rolls-Royce is researching key technologies to provide solutions to the environmental challenges in aerospace, marine and energy markets in order to bring innovative products to market. It sees considerable synergies between the technologies and skills in its existing marine and energy businesses, and will apply these to TGL’s tidal power concept.
TGL, in which Rolls-Royce has already invested £1.5 million and technical resource, is developing 500kW and 1MW demonstrators to assess viability ahead of the development of commercial multi-unit systems for tidal power arrays.
Additional development funding has come from the government to support the 500kW development unit, and International Power is to be launch customer, selecting, procuring and developing sites for the initial production units.
