'Game-chainging' tidal energy project approved for channel regions
Interreg France (Channel) England Programme has approved the biggest ever Interreg project that will prove to be game-changing for the European tidal stream energy sector. The Tidal Stream Industry Energiser Project, known as TIGER, is an ambitious €46.8m project, of which €28m (69%) comes from the European Regional Development Fund via the Interreg France (Channel) England Programme.
Inyanga Tech realises HydroWing Proof of Concept
HydroWing is based on a full-systems approach, targeted at subsea tidal energy arrays by addressing fundamental issues that have delayed the industrialisation of the sector. The full systems approach integrates Installation, Operations and Maintenance at the core of the design in order to reduce operating costs.
