In the context of the BlueTEC project, this report starts by introducing theBlueTEC tidal energy platform and reviewing the patterns of circulation of theMarsdiep inlet. The energy resource assessment and the site selection for theplatform's deployment are reported. This document analyses di?erent datasetssampled during the project, including current speeds, wave parameters, turbinepower output, platform excursions, and environmental parameters. Most of thedata was measured by instruments installed on the platform, with the exceptionof the wave data, which was sampled by a nearby oceanographic mooring, andexcept the environmental parameters, which were estimated via satellite andnumerical modelling. Preliminary results on the power output and turbine performanceare discussed, as well as the e?ect of the turbine on the water velocity.Finally, discussions on the marine growth, potential environmental impacts andfuture perspectives are also addressed.
