Pros and Cons of Tidal Energy

Gravity from the sun and moon tugs at the surface of our oceans, creating tides that move massive quantities of water across broad expanses of shoreline twice a day. All that moving water produces kinetic energy we can convert into electrical power. Though all of the earth’s continents have shorelines and tides, we haven’t done… Read More

Hurdles in Establishing Practical & Reliable Wave Energy

Wave power looks like a no-brainer at first glance. After all, oceans cover more than 70 percent of our planet’s surface, and waves lap up on the shores of all seven continents. Just build machines to convert those waves into electricity and we’re all set, right? Alas, wave energy challenges can be as deep as… Read More

Massive Tides Invite Wave of Tidal Energy Research

Fundy Bay is famous for pictures of fishing boats tilted on their hulls — run aground by the immense power of the world’s largest tides. The waters of this scenic coastal inlet along Canada’s Nova Scotia and New Brunswick provinces rise and fall by more than 50 feet twice a day, every day of the… Read More

Preparing to equip wave technology companies

In the United States, wave energy technology is less advanced than tidal. But as interest grows, companies like ours are prepared to equip these new tidal power companies with proven subsea cable hardware helping them become profitable sources of electricity. Small tidal power companies are taking advantage of the rising interest in alternative energies. Large amounts of coastal waters… Read More

Looking ahead: Pushing technology and innovation further

Forward-thinking and progressive companies will push sustainable energy technology and innovation further, testing its boundaries. These companies will advance as they see the value in environmental advocacy. They will be very focused on time and cost cutting methods. At PMI, we are looking into the future with these companies, helping reduce their costs through the use… Read More

Tidal energy may be young, but long-time cable hardware suppliers will serve this growing market.

  Tidal energy farms require cables. And we understand that the lifetime of those cables significantly effect O&M costs. That’s why as the demand for tidal energy grows, we expect to find ourselves a long-time supplier in this market. Our product are designed to guard against cable and equipment damage, extend service life and maintain cable integrity… Read More

As wind power grows, hardware support will be needed.

As wind power grows in the UK, it is certain to grow in the US. PMI’s experience designing and producing reliable cable systems for offshore wind projects will benefit companies looking to innovate, increase performance and lower costs. The UK Department of Energy and Climate Change has released results of a public attitude tracking survey,… Read More
