Navier Flow Consultants – a leading UK-based independent specialist in the field of Computational Fluid Dynamics – having assessed the feasibility of TPGen24’s ability to generate power – recently issued a report with two incredible headline findings:
– TPGen24 has the potential to deliver 9.53 TWh per year – enough to provide power to 1.86 million homes or recharge 30 million vehicles per year.
– Using a 1D model to represent the tidal lagoon concept in Flownex SE (a commercial 1D network modelling code) TPGen24 could generate power for 24 hours in a day – a vision long considered the ‘Holy Grail’ in Tidal renewables.
A combination of design innovations allows TPGen24 to generate power around the clock, with a mean power output of 2,200MW. The modelling shows a minimum of 499MW output on two occasions in the 24 hours cycle, but with four vast peaks evenly spaced apart on the incoming and receding tides.
