Ganaín constructs the Magallanes Platform to harness tidal energy

45 metres overall length, weighing in at 360 tonnes, the Magallanes Platform, promoted by Magallanes Renovables, may entail a quantum leap forward in our capacity to harness energy from sea tides. Behind its manufacturing process and a complex launching, which took place on 22nd April last, lies Ganaín.

This floating platform is equipped with two hydrogenerators that transform water energy into electrical power. As recalled by Magallanes Renovables on its website, tidal energy could be sufficient to supply 7.5% of world demand in electrical power.

Ganaín technicians and operators worked high up: the Platform was installed at a height of 15 metres to be able to complete its assembly

Construction of the platform was organized into five blocks, built at the Ganaín workshops in Mos. In the course of one month, they were conveyed to the Port of Vigo for assembly. Ganaín technicians and operators worked high up: the Platform was installed at a height of 15 metres to be able to complete its assembly. The launching operation called for the use of 2 special cranes.

Magallanes Renovables will be taking the Platform, built by Ganaín, to Scottish waters. There they will continue to develop the tidal energy harnessing project.
