Philippines Tidal Power Assessment
Water Technology generated a calibrated numerical model of the Bohol Sea in the central Philippines to assess potential locations for tidal power generators. High current streams intersect the islands of the Philippines through the Bohol Sea and the project was designed to provide a rapid evaluation of the site based on a number of criteria provided by the Client.
Data used for the assessment was captured from global tidal models and C-MAP navigational charts. A number of locations were identified through the study and more detailed assessment of the current speeds and potential for tidal power explored through refined modelling and investigation.
