Tidal energy comes to Singapore

The Nanyang Technological University has launched a 1 MW tidal power test bed at the popular southern resort island Sentosa.

Designed, built and installed by a group from NTU’s Energy Research Institute in conjunction with the Sentosa Development Corporation, the tidal turbine is part of a project meant to demonstrate marine power as a source of renewable energy.

Electricity generated by the unit is being used to power lights at the Sentosa Boardwalk Turbine Exhibit, which is a public exhibition showcasing Sentosa’s comprehensive sustainability plan.

NTU officials said the turbine will also be used to further analyze how low-flow tidal energy can be made cheaper and more efficient.
