A Success Story:
Founded in 2009 and based in Redondela, Spain, Magallanes Renovables is a company focused on the development and commercialization of floating tidal energy systems.
What started as an idea drawn on a napkin by our founder Alejandro Marques more than 15 years ago, has now become a reality, that has come to revolutionize the renewable energy industry.
After many research studies on the potential viability of the technology, an important milestone was achieved with the construction in 2012 of our 1:10 scale model, and the successful tests carried on in Vigo and in the Orkney Islands. This first platform demonstrated the viability of our tidal energy generation system and encouraged us to keep working towards our ultimate goal. This led us to the construction in 2018 of our full-scale platform, the ATIR, with a 1,5MW capacity, this platform was set to change the way we see ocean energy. It is now being tested at the EMEC, in the Orkney Islands, Scotland, with excellent results.
Magallanes Renovables is currently developing a commercial product based on the ATIR to break into the market with our disruptive, cost-effective technology.
Our philosophy is simplicity and cost-effectiveness, which has led us to develop breakthrough systems, solving the many challenges encountered with innovative and cost-effective solutions. Key for the viability of the technology. Our greatest asset is our team and the knowledge and experience acquired during the 13 years it has taken us to develop this technology from scratch.
