Project: ITEG (Integrating Tidal Energy into the European Grid)

Timescale: 2017 – 2022

Funder: Interreg North-West Europe

Funding: EU funding – €6.46 m/ Total budget – €11.79 m

Project overview:

EMEC ITEG text smaller 640 edit

ITEG will develop and validate an integrated tidal energy and hydrogen production solution for clean energy generation to be demonstrated in Orkney. The project addresses energy related carbon emissions in North West Europe and will tackle grid export limitations faced in remote communities.

Using power generated by Orbital’s 2MW tidal turbine, the Orbital O2, deployed at the Fall of Warness in 2021, the project will see an additional 0.5 MW electrolyser built by AREVAH2GEN and a smart onshore energy management system (EMS) installed on Eday. This will enable EMEC to control whether the tidal power generated is fed into the national grid or into the electrolyser to produce hydrogen.
