Project: TIGER (Tidal Stream Industry Energiser)

Timescale: 2019 – 2023 (47 months)

Funder: Interreg France (Channel) England Programme

Funding: ERDF funding € 29 million / Total project budget € 45.4 million

Project website: www.InterregTiger.com

Project overview

The TIGER project will demonstrate that tidal stream energy is a maturing industry, capable of achieving an accelerated cost reduction pathway.

The project will build cross-border partnerships to develop new technologies, test and demonstrate up to 8 MW of new tidal capacity at a number of locations around the Channel region, and use the learning from this development to make a stronger, cost-effective case for tidal energy as part of the France/UK energy mix.

The project is the largest ever to be approved not only by the France (Channel) England Programme but by any Interreg programme.

TIGER webinars

EMEC has supported the delivery of six supply chain webinars and two meet the buyer events for TIGER. Available to view watch again here.

The events cover the following topics:

  • Subsea cables and connectors
  • Tidal energy opportunities for steel manufacturing and supply chain learning
  • Growing the supply chain for cost effective reliable composite blades, tooling and sensor design for tidal turbines
  • Anti-fouling and anti-corrosion requirements of tidal turbines
  • Reliability & condition monitoring of tidal turbines
  • Onshore and offshore mobilisation and logistics
