The wind-caressed charm of the Orkney islands in Scotland has now got some pretty underwater turbines harnessing tidal energy for the neighborhood homes and businesses. The 1MW HS1000 tidal turbine created by Andritz Hydro Hammerfest was stationed back in December 2011 and has frequently been tested since. Scottish Power Renewables (SPR) intends to employ this technology as part of the world’s first tidal turbine lineup in the Sound of Islay. The company’s strategy to create a 10MW tidal lineup in Islay got a planning approval from the Scottish government in March 2011.
Keith Anderson, CEO, Scottish Power Renewables, exclaimed that the functioning of turbine has boosted their confidence immensely. Engineers efficiently installed the device throughout the brutal weather conditions, and the turbine has been functioning at a high standard since then. This has only maintained the company's faith of going through with larger-scale projects in Islay and the Pentland Firth.

Wonder how long it will take to power the whole world naturally! With the latest advancements, a positive answer to this question may be out soon enough. Posted in: #Coffee Room
