GE has made significant investments in the reliable, inexhaustible, and predictable energy source that is tidal power.
We offer complete solutions that work to improve tidal farm economics based on over 10 years of accumulated experience. This includes the successful testing of 500 kW and 1 MW turbines which has resulted in over 1.5 GWh of electricity being added to the grid and has provided invaluable data to the industry.
Four separate Oceade 1.4-18, the first variant of our tidal turbines platform, and an electrical subsea hub, will equip ENGIE’s pilot farm in Raz Blanchard, France. This is an important first step towards setting up commercial operations in tidal energy.
