At Shallow Tidal and Deeper River Sites: ORPC’s TidGen®
Power System, designed to generate electricity at water depths of
50 to 100 feet, is used at shallow tidal and deep river sites. In this system, groups
of TGUs connect directly to an on-shore station through a single underwater transmission
line. The TidGen®
Power System is larger and more powerful than the RivGen®
System, with each TGU having a rated capacity of 150 kW.
