MAKO Tidal Turbines has developed a range of hydrokinetic turbines capable of operating in a variety of flow rates, making them deployable in the greatest range of locations around the world. Even at low flow rates, the MAKO is able to produce electricity cost-effectively. MAKO Tidal Turbines uses the latest advances in computer design and the most up-to-date materials and techniques to systematically solve the problems which have plagued the first-generation devices and in doing so, deliver predictable renewable power.
Worldwide, millions of people remain disadvantaged because of limited or zero access to electricity. Our vision is to empower these communities with the energy security most of the world takes for granted.
The Sydney-based engineering team has been recruited to design, prototype, test and manufacture MAKO turbines in our modern factory premises in Alexandria, NSW.
