Tocardo Marine Hydrokinetic Turbines


Tocardo is a young and ambitious company from the Netherlands, aiming to become a world-wide operating and leading player in the tidal industry. Tocardo acts both as in-stream energy device manufacturer and tidal project developer.

The technology is at TRL-9 and ready for commercial deployment with several models already sold. The models available are the T-100 & T-200 with the T-500 coming soon. Respectively, they are 100kW, 200kW, 500kW machines. Here are some video depictions of the site in Den Oever, the Netherlands where the T100 is currently operational.

And a more elaborate company movie on Tocardo.

Since 2010, RNE has been contracted by Tocardo as the exclusive representative to support the market development in the US and this engagement is ongoing. Considering marine hydrokinetics are a new element in the renewable energy market mix, there are few projects to which the products can be sold. Therefore, market development is more leaning towards project development.

We have several projects under development throughout the US, including some near-term pilot / demonstration opportunities with utilities, private developers and the Federal Government. These will be described more elaborately in our portfolio for Marine Hydrokinetic Projects.

We have a good network of engineering and installation partners that complement our proposition.
