Powerful

Verified industry leading turbine efficiency that maintains top-level performance in real-world turbulent flows, at sea and in operation.


Versatile

Suitable for tidal flows, rivers, irrigation canals, and tailraces. The MAKO can unlock energy from even slow moving water, down to 1m/s which is a more abundant and accessible energy source worldwide.


Cost Competitive

The MAKO lowers the cost-per-kW of ocean renewable energy through technical innovations – modular construction and container shippable
onsite without requiring specialist lifting and deployment equipment.

Dependable

The MAKO has been extensively endurance tested in many operating environments. On-board industrial
internet telemetry provides real-time assurance, predictable power output and consistently safe operation.


Scalable

The MAKO is perfectly suited for megawatt scale power arrays, as it can be composited in any deployment configuration – floating barge, pole-mount, bridge-mount or sea-bed gravity anchor.

Engineering Philosophy

Our philosophy is to use the latest advances in computer design and the most up-to-date materials and techniques to systematically solve the problems which have plagued first-generation tidal devices. Through these solutions, MAKO Tidal Turbines is able to deliver predictable renewable power.

Our approach to engineering the MAKO is painstaking design and attention to detail which is critical to efficient operation in a harsh marine environment.

Engineering Facilities

The MAKO has been fabricated in our modern CNC Machining facility which includes a Weiler lathe and a Kuka robot.  The lathe is capable of machining stainless steel parts for the MAKO to a tolerance of one thousandth of a millimetre.

The recent advances in CNC machining equipment allows us to take design files and input these to the fully automated equipment to fabricate components. This has allowed us to significantly reduce the time it takes to design, fabricate, test and improve the various structural components of the MAKO.
