Norwegian Coastal Administration to support Tidal Sails

The Norwegian Coastal Administration (NCA) recently confirmed its support of Tidal Sails’ scheduled WaveSails and Kvalsund projects.

The NCA’s Letter of Support and Intent states that the offer is motivated by the agency’s desire to gain knowledge and insight into the new and highly complex frontier that is ocean energy. Furthermore, it is stipulated that the nature of the support offered will be lending capacity, advice and know-how towards specific tasks relating to the aforementioned Kvalsund project. Also, the NCA will assist in the scoping of new projects for further development, including smaller scale prototypes and participation in Norwegian and EU funded projects.

We look forward to working with the NCA, and believe the partnership will no doubt prove both valuable and mutually beneficial.
