90-Minute Podcast Interview with @Tocardo CTO Pieter de Haas on Tidal Power & Axial Turbines

Torcado make pretty fantastic looking turbines, and Markus Voelter and Nora Ludewig produce a pretty fantastic podcast of mostly scientific and technical topics for omega tau. This episode is a great pairing. It’s long, at just over 90 minutes, but if you’re into hydroelectric power, turbines, renewable energy sources, or just like geeking out about technical issues, you’ll want to queue this podcast!

Tidal power refers to extracting electrical energies out of the tide streams in oceans. Various techniques exist. Tocardo is a provider of axial turbines, and our guest, Pieter de Haas, is their CTO. In this episode we talk about tidal power in general, siting, the design and engineering of Tocardo’s turbines as well as the overall economic and technical trade-offs in making the turbines work over the long run.
