Schottel deploys Hydro in Indonesia
German tidal energy company Schottel Hydro has installed a SIT 250 turbine at Bintuni Bay in Indonesia.
Schottel has partnered with Green Forest Product & Tech, PT Bintuni Utama Murni Wood Industries, OceanPixel, Aquatera and the Energy Research Institute at Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University on the project.
The turbine is suspended below a floating barge and supplies power to a wood chip factory that had previously received all its power from diesel generators.
The project took 12 months to complete, Schottel said.
