Scotrenewables Tidal Power Ltd is the world leader in the development of floating tidal stream and run-of-river turbines. The Scotrenewables Tidal Turbine, is an award-winning, patented hydrokinetic energy converter designed to convert energy from tidal streams and river currents where they are strongest – closest to the surface.

The Company


Founded in 2002, Scotrenewables Tidal Power is committed to the development and commercialisation of the SRTT floating tidal turbine with the goal of delivering cost effective renewable power to satisfy current and future energy requirements worldwide.


The Concept


The SRTT is an innovative, award-winning, patented design that has shown strong potential as a robust, low cost Tidal Energy Converter (TEC). The design differs markedly from our competitors, being comparatively cheap to construct, install, deploy and retrieve and is easy to maintain.


SR250kW Prototype


The concept has been trialled at increasing scales in laboratory and open ocean conditions since its inception in 2002. The most recent testing of a 250kW prototype turbine for 30 months, 2011-2013, proved the concept at large scale and provided the confidence to progress to a commercial scale turbine rated at 2MW.


The Future


Once launched in early 2015, the SR2000 2MW will undergo an intensive demonstration programme at the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC), following which it will be offered to the global tidal industry as a technology with the lowest levelised cost of energy in the sector.
