"Tidal Array in a Day" Seminar Set for RenewableUK

(Press Release)
Tuesday, October 11, 2011

The first ever ‘How to Build a Tidal Array in a Day’ seminar will be held on Tuesday 25th October during the RenewableUK 2011 conference and exhibition in Manchester.
And industry delegates are being invited to participate in this unique interactive event to contribute towards making Tidal Energy a commercial reality and meet renewable energy targets.
The one day seminar, a major initiative by RenewableUK together with five leading Marine Energy stakeholders, will examine the key end-to-end challenges required to deploy a 100 MW array of tidal energy devices - and the solutions needed to ensure its success.
These challenges include: Site Assessment, Design, Planning and Deployment – the major concerns for all organisations looking to build tidal arrays to meet the UK Government’s target of commissioning nearly 2GigaWatts(GW) of installed wave and tidal energy capacity by 2020.
The seminar is being hosted by RenewableUK with leading marine energy stakeholders Sustainable Marine Technologies (SMT), IT Power, MacArtney, SMD and Aquatera, who have come together in an unique collaboration which recognises the importance of developing a holistic systems approach to delivering tidal array projects.
David Krohn, Wave and Tidal Development Manager at RenewableUK, says: “The next 8 years present significant technical challenges for the deployment of tidal energy projects.
“This interactive seminar will help find solutions to deliver the tidal arrays required to meet the Government’s targets, and enable Tidal Energy to reach its full potential in contributing to the essential shift from diminishing and polluting fossil fuels to renewable energies.”
The event is free and open to all attending RenewableUK 2011, however, spaces are limited so interested parties should pre-register to ensure they guarantee their places. More information and registration details can be found at www.tidalarray.com
