About Tocardo Solutions

Tocardo Solutions is a Dutch founded and based company and global leader in tidal energy solutions.  They are driven to develop state-of-the-art business solutions that maximise the potential of the tidal energy production worldwide.  They believe that this type of energy stands at the beginning of its development and its full potential, just like wind turbines 10 years ago.  But unlike other alternative sources, this ‘flow of energy’, delivers a solid, reliable volume of green energy.  Therefore it generates a competitive ROI for investors.

​Their team consists of great professionals, each passionate about the product and our ambitions.  The offshore experience and knowledge within the company resulted in the installation of the first Tocardo test turbine in 2005, followed by the installation of a commercial turbine in 2008.  They focus on reliability and affordability, so our turbines ‘fit’ as broad a range of locations and deliver sustainable results.


Role of Tocardo Solutions in MET-CERTIFIED

With the funding Tocardo Solutions will actively involve stakeholders around certification, to start with verifying existing pilot projects against the IEC standards.  For example, the tidal power plant in the Eastern Scheldt Storm Surge barrier will be used as a reference case for certification.  By applying the standards and certification schemes on such projects they will receive valuable feedback to improve the IEC products. They will go through the process of certification: from concept to construction to installation of a full-scale floating platform for tidal turbines.
