This new project will be located adjacent to the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) facility, where Orbital has already deployed the 2MW O2, the world’s most powerful tidal turbine, under commercial operation.
Tidal stream power has the potential to deliver 11% of the UK’s current annual electricity and play a significant role in the government’s drive for net-zero, according to new research.
This important archaeological project involving The Archaeology Institute of the University of the Highlands and Islands, ORCA (Orkney Research Centre for Archaeology), St Andrew’s University and members of the community is funded by Heritage Lottery Funding.
Orbital O2, a 680 tonne tidal turbine is on its way to Orkney.
