This site is currently under development. TTC expects to have the offshore site operational by the end of 2013. There is a world wide need to test tidal energy prototypes, validate models and monitor environmental effects. Increasingly, developers are looking for sites with real world conditions to demonstrate the technology works. TTC has identified an excellent spot just south of the island Texel, between the public ferry port and the NIOZ research harbor. Near the shore the flow can reach 3-4 knots (about 1.8 m / s) and there is sufficient depth (approx. 30 meters) to accommodate larger size turbines.
