Innovative solution

Tidal technology is innovative and could grow into a significant Dutch export product. The export expectation of tidal energy is more than 200 Gigawatt. With our turbines in the Eastern Scheldt storm surge barrier, we can now show the world what tidal energy is all about: providing a clean and reliable source of energy that could fulfil 10-20% of the world’s electricity needs

Cooperation

  • Tocardo, producer of the tidal power plant.
  • Huisman was responsible for the design and the construction of the turbine’s suspension structure.

Besides Tocardo and Huisman, many other Dutch companies were involved in this prestigious project. Mammoet’s involvement in the project comprises the transportation and installation of the Tidal Power Plant at the Eastern Scheldt storm surge barrier. The local companies Istimewa, Van der Straaten and Hillebrand also play an important role in terms of the electro-technical installation and steel structures.
