Get to Know Our Tidal Turbine Systems
The central component of the Verdant Tidal Turbine System is a three-bladed horizontal-axis turbine. The turbine is equipped with a composite rotor with three blades that rotate at a slow and regular rate, well below normal water vessel propeller speeds and conventional hydropower turbine blade speeds.
The drive train and generator are enclosed within the nacelle, including a special integrated long-life planetary gear box and bearing housing with mechanical shaft seals for the main shaft. The sealed nacelle is supported on a pylon that attaches to a seafloor mount, which can vary depending on site and project specifications.

Meet The Developers Behind Wales' Newest Tidal Stream Projects
The latest results of the UK Government’s renewable auction, the Contracts for Difference scheme, was described as ‘catastrophic’ for the offshore wind sector. But tidal stream energy in the UK was awarded a huge boost, with 11 companies successfully gaining contracts. The auction awards a 15-year contract to the projects that bid the lowest price for the clean electricity they go on to generate. At an agreed strike price of £198/MWh, the developers behind these projects can now move forward with confidence.
