Vertical Axis Tidal Turbines – VATTS

  • Novel vertical axis technology has been demonstrated to date by GKinetic. This project validates the initial works and examines options to reduce the Levelised Cost of Energy (LCOE) that will bring the technology closer to market. A prototype of the technology will be tested alongside battery storage at the Queen’s University test site in Strangford Lough.Project partners: Queen’s University Belfast, GKinetic, Grants Electrical Services, GIRONA
