TidEl wins Carbon Trust Innovation Award 2005

SMD Hydrovision is pleased to announce that it has been awarded the Carbon Trust Innovation Award 2005 in the “Large Companies and Public Sector Organisations” category, for its TidEl concept, a novel moored free stream tidal turbine system.

The Carbon Trust Innovation Awards, in association with The Sunday Telegraph, are aimed at identifying those individuals and organisations whose innovative approach is making a significant contribution to reducing the UK’s CO2 emissions. They are judged by a distinguished panel of seven judges including Professor Sir David King, Chief Scientific Advisor to HM Government.

The TidEl system is an elegant solution that minimises initial capital cost while reducing subsea complexity as well as providing high quality power to the grid. In the UK alone, there is potential to install 7000MW of plant with load factors approaching 50% in some locations.

Ralph Manchester, originator of TidEl, who collected the award at a ceremony in London on the 21st April 2005 said:

”We are delighted to receive such a prestigious award. It is further confirmation that this concept can make an important contribution to reducing the UK’s CO2 emissions and in doing so create profitable business in the North East of England.”
