Case Study - Tidal Technology Roadmap

Cruz Atcheson was contracted by MAKO Tidal Turbines Pty Ltd (MTT) to conduct a technology readiness assessment of MAKO’s tidal energy converter (TEC). The CA team applied their knowledge of tidal technology developments to independently assess the MAKO’s development status and to provide recommendations to accelerate the MAKO technology’s route to market.


Cruz Atcheson’s team were subsequently invited by MAKO to complete a strategic engineering assessment of certain MAKO turbine technology proposals for deployment in a full-scale tidal environment. The work completed by Cruz Atcheson assisted the board to make key decisions regarding commercial project implementation.

// The team at Cruz Atcheson has deep industry experience and the ability to work effectively with our own people to deliver focused strategic engineering advice  in support of the MAKO's commercialisation pathway. //
