Repsol dips toe into tidal energy with Tocardo partnership: Oil giant Repsol is to enter the tidal energy busine...

Wave and tidal energy technology developers are working hard to make their technologies more commercially viable. For example the amount of ocean energy technology generating capacity installed globally more than doubled to reach 526.70MW (by end 2011 - source Lahmeyer). Repsol and Tocardo plan to jointly develop offshore tidal energy projects, combining Tocardo’s expertise in tidal and river energy technologies with Repsol’s international influence and global energy market access. Tocardo, which produces tidal and free-flow water turbines, hopes to use Repsol’s knowledge of the energy industry to tap into fledgling renewable energy markets and further accelerate the development of its off-shore engineering capabilities. Tocardo also hopes that the deal will complement a partnership it agreed late last year, with offshore engineering company Huisman Equipment , so the thre...
