  • 5. Tidal Energy Slide 5 | © OpenHydro Group Limited 2010
  • 6. Tidal Energy Tidal Measurements Tides are governed by the Sun and Moon’s gravitational field; making them completely predictable. Tidal velocities can be measured using an Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP). Using harmonic analysis, 28 days of measurement (2 x 14 day cycles) can be extrapolated to calculate tidal velocities accurately into the future. Slide 6 | © OpenHydro Group Limited 2010

  • 8. Open-Centre Turbine Open-Centre Turbine The key to the Open-Centre Turbine lies in the simplicity of design. If a turbine is to survive in the marine environment it is essential that it be both simple and robust robust. OpenHydro owns the worldwide rights to the technology; portfolio of over 30 secured or pending patents. Slide 8 | © OpenHydro Group Limited 2010
  • 9. Open-Centre Turbine Technology 1. Simple construction with only one moving part and no seals. 2. Permanent magnet generator, no gearbox. 3. Scalable design, currently at 10m [1MW rated]. Environmental 1. Large open centre provides an exit route for marine life. 2. Design avoids the need for oils, greases or other lubricating fluids. g 3. Retention of rotor blades within the outer housing. Slide 9 | © OpenHydro Group Limited 2010

  • 11. Turbine Testing Turbine Testing Testing performed at the publicly financed European Marine Energy Centre1 (EMEC) in Orkney off the coast of northern Scotland. No ‘soft option’ with some of Europe's strongest tides (8 5 knots) and extreme (8.5 weather climate. OpenHydro is the only tidal developer to have installed and tested a device at EMEC. 1 Reference: OpenHydro s OpenHydro’s Turbine Research Structure www.emec.org.uk Slide 11 | © OpenHydro Group Limited 2010

  • 15. Turbine Testing Slide 15 | © OpenHydro Group Limited 2010
  • 16. Turbine Testing Grid Operation First company to connect and generate onto UK national grid (2008). Slide 16 | © OpenHydro Group Limited 2010
  • 17. Turbine Testing Turbine Exchange Since 2006, OpenHydro have tested five 6m Open-Centre Turbines at the EMEC facility. Slide 17 | © OpenHydro Group Limited 2010
  • 18. Turbine Testing Lessons Learnt The installation at EMEC provides OpenHydro with an invaluable platform for tidal turbine research and development. OpenHydro’s team have unique knowledge and experience of operating in strong tidal sites and with grid connection. For commercial deployments, OpenHydro do not regard piled structures as viable.

  • 28. Subsea Installation Lessons Learnt Our experience has shown us that the appropriate equipment for installing tidal turbines does not exist in the general marine market. This new deployment method turns a difficult and lengthy project of many months into a quick and cost-efficient single day operation. A cost effective deployment method is essential for developing commercial farms farms. Slide 28 | © OpenHydro Group Limited 2010
