Tidal waves

  1. 1. Current Sites In Pakistan Indus Deltaic Creek System Gawadar Orm ara Tidal power has not yet been operational in Pakistan compared to other renewable energy technologies, but in near future it may play a key role.
  2. 2. Feasibility Of Selected Sites In these creeks water tidal water flows with high velocity which is a favorable requirement for the extraction of energy from tidal currents This energy could be harnessed for the generation of electrical power for rapidly developing coastal cities such as Gawadar, Ormara, Pasni etc.
  3. 3. Advantages Renewable energy resource Not as pollutant as other energy resources Cheap once the structure has been constructed Although cost of construction of tidal power is high but maintenance costs are relatively low. We can predict the rise and fall of tides as they follow cyclic fashion. The energy density of tidal energy is relatively higher than other renewable energy sources. Tidal Energy doesn’t require any kind of fuel to run. The life of tidal energy power plant is very long.
  4. 4. Disadvantages Cost of construction is very high. Harm to aquatic life and destruction of migration of fish. This technology is still not cost effective and more technological advancements are required to make it commercially viable. Usually the places where tidal energy is produced are far away from the places where it is consumed. This transmission is expensive and difficult. Intensity of sea waves is unpredictable and there can be damage to power generation units. There are very few ideal locations for construction of plant and they too are localized to coastal regions only.
  5. 5. The coastline of Pakistan, which is about 1,045 km-long with dominant features, is the best resource for harnessing tidal energy. In Sindh, two sites, creek system of Indus delta of 170 km and two to five metres tidal heights at the Korangi Creek, are available to exploit the tidal energy. Sonmiani Beach and Kalamat are also good prospects of tidal energy in Baluchistan. Government has issued license to private companies to take measures to build tidal power stations in February 2013. Since then, the engineering work is under process, and initially a 10 MW plant is proposed at Sonmiani Bay. Construction is expected to start at the end of 2013. Future Prospects
