World’s largest tidal turbine

Tidal turbines have a history as turbulent as the waters they are in. But development continues. This new 1 MW tidal turbine, the biggest ever, will be tested in unforgiving seas off Orkney, Scotland.

And imagine what will happen when turbines can last in such waters – and one day they will – then we will have huge amounts of utterly predictable amounts of renewable energy

  • The winds come and go, but the tides run forever, Around Scotland there are numerous islands with narrow staights that generate strong tidal flows all just waiting to be tapped into.

    • Exactly. Tidal power may not be steady but it is completely predictable as to when the power will be generated.
