Tidal turbine

Scottish Government funding of £3.4m has been awarded to help build the world’s most powerful floating tidal turbine.

Scottish engineering company Orbital Marine Power has been awarded the money as the first recipient of the Scottish Government’s £10m Saltire Tidal Energy Challenge Fund. The funding will be used to deliver the next-generation O2 2 MW floating tidal energy turbine, which will be capable of powering more than 1700 homes a year. Of particular note, the O2 project will demonstrate how this emerging industrial sector has the ability to deliver new jobs, while pioneering solutions for a zero carbon future.
