Water Power Peer Review Puget Sound Pilot Tidal Energy Project (TRL 7/8) 1 | Program Name or Ancillary Text Dr. Brian Polagye (for Craig Collar) University of Washington [email protected] November 1, 2011 (Snohomish PUD) eere.energy.gov Purpose & Objectives Snohomish County Public Utility District and its partners propose to deploy two tidal energy turbines in Admiralty Inlet, Puget Sound, WA. Site identified as one of the largest tidal hydrokinetic resources in the United States.
Requires deep water technology (depth > 50 m) Sensitive environment within the range of several endangered species and under existing anthropogenic stress. 2 | Wind and Water Power Program eere.energy.gov Purpose & Objectives Project Statement: Deploy, operate, and evaluate two OpenCentre Turbines developed and manufactured by OpenHydro Group Ltd. 6 m rotor diameter ~250 kW peak generation Grid connected (separate cables)
3-5 year deployment 6th Generation Open-Centre Turbine Project Purpose: Gather data to advance the technical, economic, social, and environmental viability of commercial-scale tidal energy. These data are critical to the responsible advancement of commercial scale tidal energy in the United States. 3 | Wind and Water Power Program eere.energy.gov Integration Resource characteristics informing device design Acoustic characterization of tidal energy devices Risk assessment case study Passive acoustic system for localizing marine mammals Interest in instrumentation package testing 4 | Wind and Water Power Program eere.energy.gov
Technical Approach Deployment Installed directly on the seabed (no surface visibility) Steel tubular frame filled with concrete and stone ballast No pinning, piling, or drilling to secure the turbine foundation to the seabed 5 | Wind and Water Power Program eere.energy.gov Technical Approach Monitoring Challenges Adequately monitored pilot projects are the only viable way to reduce technical, economic, social, and environmental uncertainties Challenging for any tidal energy development , but more so for deployment in Admiralty Inlet Largely beyond the reach of human divers
Beneath the photic zone Conditions are the rule not the exception for most utility-scale tidal energy resources Maintaining and upgrading monitoring Requires recovery, redeployment, and reconnection to turbine power and communications Need to minimize biofouling over periods of several months 6 | Wind and Water Power Program eere.energy.gov Technical Approach Monitoring Implementation Stereo Imaging Marine life Device condition CTDO Water
