Advanced TidGen Power System - Preliminary IO&M and Testing Plan

Awaiting release License 

The TidGen Power System generates emission-free electricity from tidal currents and connects directly into existing grids using smart grid technology. The power system consists of three major subsystems: shore-side power electronics, mooring system, and turbine generator unit (TGU) device.

This submission includes the preliminary Installation, Operation & Maintenance (IO&M) and testing plan. In 2012, the first TidGen device was installed in Cobscook Bay utilizing a piled foundation, which required extensive, costly geotechnical survey and on-water effort on the order of several weeks to install the system. The Advanced TidGen 2.0 Power System has adapted the Buoyant Tensioned Mooring System (BTMS) that reduces on-water deployment time to within a tidal cycle. The device has been designed to match the resources typically available in remote regions, such as Igiugig, Alaska, which are the immediate commercial market for ORPC's technology. The system has been designed to meet requirements throughout the entire lifecycle concept of operations.
