The Dutch Tidal Testing Centre (TTC) located in the North of Holland at Den Oever provides excellent opportunities for tidal stream testing at intermediate scale. We can offer testing in a ducted channel, open water tow tests with a barge and in the near future testing will also be possible at our dedicated offshore floating site.

Besides these services, TTC is involved in several funded research projects both in national and international consortia. We also collaborate with other test facilities such as ECN, NIOZ, EMEC and others and in international networks, for example on the development of standards in the International Electrotechnical Commission IEC to help advance the marine energy industry.

We look forward to helping advance your technology further!
