Producer of hydro-power turbines, Tocardo International has entered into an agreement with German-Korean Corporation, Korwind to sell its renewable energy technology into South Korea.
Tocardo’s turbines can generate energy in any environment with flowing water: offshore tidal currents, or in-shore rivers.
Korwind will utilize its extensive network of Korean commercial and government relationships to implement the Dutch hydro-power specialist’s technology.
Tocardo has further signed an R&D agreement with Blue Ocean Power to demonstrate the effectiveness of its 1MW tidal turbine, at Saemankeum Barrage.
This installation will combine tidal and ocean current power, providing an ideal demonstration of Tocardo’s ultra-efficient turbines.
Tocardo is the only company that produces and sells commercially viable water turbines, reports koreaittimes.com.
Tocardo has extensive experience with the South Korean renewable energy market, and a strong record of building trade links between Korea and Northwest Europe.
