Dynamic Tidal Power

Dynamic Tidal Power is a potential new method of tidal power generation. It involves creating a large dam-like structure extending from the coast straight into the ocean, with a possible perpendicular barrier at the far end, forming a large 'T' shape.

This dam would harness the tidal waves running along the coasts of continental shelves which contain powerful hydraulic energy.

A consortium of eight Dutch companies, including ARCADIS, is leading the development of this new, patented technology with the Chinese Government, known as the Power programme.
