Record breaking SR2000 turbine to be recovered from European Marine Energy Centre in Orkney ahead of site preparations for optimised production model. In a move to start site preparation work for their optimised 2MW floating tidal turbine, Scotrenewables Tidal Power have started work to remove the SR2000 turbine from its test berth at EMEC. The SR2000’s withdrawal from service at EMEC follows a record breaking year of testing which saw it generate in excess of 3GWh of renewable electricity. CEO Andrew Scott said: “The last 12 months have provided unrivalled validation of our engineering and, more importantly, our...
Tidal stream prototype generates 3GWh of predictable renewable electricity in under 12 months
at European Marine Energy Centre in Orkney Scotrenewables Tidal Power has set another record with its first 2MW floating tidal stream turbine with the unit clocking up over 3GWh of renewable electricity in its first year of testing at the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) in Orkney, Scotland. In 12 months of continuous operation, including during the worst winter storms in recent years, the pioneering SR2000 – the world’s most powerful operating tidal stream turbine - has supplied the equivalent annual electricity demand of around 830 UK...
Statement on TIDAL STREAM AND WAVE ENERGY COST REDUCTION AND INDUSTRIAL BENEFIT report by ORE CATAPULT.
Scotrenewables Tidal Power, the leading developer of floating tidal energy systems, welcomes the TIDAL STREAM AND WAVE ENERGY COST REDUCTION AND INDUSTRIAL BENEFIT report, published by ORE Catapult today. Speaking at All-Energy in Glasgow, Andrew Scott, Chief Executive Officer of Scotrenewables Tidal Power said, “
“The ORE Catapult study presents a hugely compelling case to implement structured commercial markets for tidal energy that will enable the investment required to build the tidal energy industry in the UK. The report validates our own cost analysis of our 2MW SR2000 turbine which has been successfully operating at EMEC over the...
