Key Technologies/Services

  • PLAT-O is a comprehensive systems integration solution, exporting grid-compatible power from multiple tidal energy convertors. It is a buoyant platform that is taut moored to the seabed using a bespoke anchoring solution that has also been developed by SME.  It is moored mid-column and offers a number of benefits including enhanced yield and survivability due to its position in the water column, which also ensures that surface vessels can pass safely overhead. Besides a surface marker buoy, the system is not visible on the surface.
