With continuous development of marine engineering, more and more new structures are used in the exploring of tidal current energy. Three are there different kinds of support structures for tidal current power station, which are sea-bed mounted/gravity based system, pile mounted system and floating moored platform. Comparison with them, the floating mooring system is suit for deep water and the application of which will be widely. In this study, catamaran and semi-submersible as floating platform of tidal current power station are studied. And they are compared with its economic, efficiency of turbine and stability of station. It is found that the catamaran is optimal choice. Based on basic ship theory and using software MOSES, the stability of Catamaran tidal current power station is also calculated. The research of this study is significant and it will be as the reference for the future study.
