Tocardo | tidal, river and ocean energy power turbines

A flow of calculable, noiseless & renewable energy

We are Tocardo. A Dutch founded and based company and global leader in tidal energy solutions. We are driven to develop state-of-the-art business solutions that maximise the potential of the tidal energy production worldwide. We believe that this type of energy stands at the beginning of its development and its full potential, just like wind turbines 10 years ago. But unlike other alternative sources, this ‘flow of energy’, delivers a solid, reliable volume of green energy.

Therefore it generates a competitive ROI for investors.

Eastern Scheldt – Combining tidal energy and a storm surge barrier

The Eastern Scheldt storm surge barrier is the largest structure of the famous Dutch Delta works, designed to protect large parts of The Netherlands from flooding. Tocardo designed a 1.2 MW tidal power plant to harness electricity from the strong tidal currents through the barrier.

Investeren in Energie uit Water? Wij Nederlanders hebben een sterke relatie met water. De interactie tussen water en land heeft geleid tot innovatie en inspiratie.

Tidal Solutions

Inshore

Solutions to harness electricity from tidal currents, often by using existing civil structures such as dams, dikes and bridges.

Offshore

Big power plants located offshore. Either floating or on the sea floor. These solutions provide a stable baseload of clean electricity.

River

Rivers flow continuously and can provide an excellent baseload of electricity.  River solutions have little environmental impact opposed to traditional hydro.

Smartgrid

An electricity grid is not always present. In these cases Tocardo can provide a smartgrid solution to create a local, stable electricity grid.
