Hyundai completes tidal power system trial in Korea

Hyundai Heavy Industries has completed the site trial of a prototype 500-kW tidal current power system at Uldolmok Passage in Jeollanam-do, southwest Korea, wire services reported.

The prototype tidal current power system directly connects a tidal turbine, a gearbox and a generator for power transmission.

The system can operate regardless of current direction using a specially designed turbine system, the company said. After completing factory and basin tests last year, the company produced target power generation from site trials.

Based on the data collected from the trials, Hyundai plans to pursue tidal current power farm projects by scaling up power generators.

In other news, Indonesia's PP and Hyundai have secured a US$339.4 million contract for the construction of an 88-MW hydropower plant in Indonesia.

The hydro plant will be built in Sumatra's Aceh province.
