Atlantis Resources Corporation has been contracted to develop Asia’s first commercial tidal power plant. The plant will be located off the Gulf of Kutch in Gujarat, India. The contract is for an initial 50 megawatt project with later developments of up to 250 megawatts. One possibility is the development of a "mega marine power project," combining offshore wind and tidal power sources.
Work is expected to begin later this year.
Atlantis Resources Corporation was founded in Singapore but developed its technology in Australia where it has been operating its own dedicated tidal power test facility in San Remo, Victoria, since 2006.
