(GPCL), Vadodara, M/s Atlantis Resource Corporation, United Kingdom and Perfect Mining Energy Solutions, Singapore. A Special Purpose Vehicle has been incorporated in May, 2011 and GPCL has taken up a 50 MW tidal power project at Mandavi in district Kutch in first phase. There is no other tidal power project under consideration.

In eighties, a study was undertaken by Central Electricity Authority, New Delhi for the assessment of tidal energy potential in the country. According to the study, there is an estimated potential of about 8000 MW tidal energy in the country.
