  • MCT's SeaGen tidal turbines to begin onshore testing at Narec

    SeaGen Turbine

    The United Kingdom's National Renewable Energy Centre (Narec) will soon serve as the test site for a hydrokinetic turbine developed by Siemens-owned Marine Current Turbines.

    MCT's SeaGen-S will undergo a six-month testing program at Narec which will focus on its 1 MW powertrain, power conversion, control system and grid interface.

    "We are delighted MCT has chosen Narec to play a significant role in supporting the commercialization of their new tidal energy device," Narec chief executive Andrew Mill said.

    Research will be conducted at Narec's 3 MW onshore drivetrain test facility.

    "This test program forms the cornerstone of our proactive and comprehensive range of testing aimed at proving new designs," MCT engineering director Matthew Reed said.

    HydroVision.com reported that Siemens had bought the majority stake in MCT in February 2012.
