Evopod™ is a semi-submerged, floating, tethered tidal energy capture device. It uses a simple but effective mooring system that allows the free floating device to maintain optimum heading into the tidal stream.
Oceanflow Development Limited is delighted to have secured a 7 year lease from The Crown Estate on an area of seabed in Sanda Sound, South Kintyre. The lease will allow Oceanflow to deploy and test its Evopod™ floating tethered tidal stream turbine at the site from 2013.
