Nova Innovation to lead tidal energy array expansion

Having been the first energy company in the world to turn on a fully operational tidal power array, Nova Innovation will lead the next stage in expanding the existing Bluemull Sound tidal array to six (maybe more) turbines.

Sarah Beattie-Smith, from WWF Scotland, said: “With some of the most powerful tides in Europe, Scotland is well-placed to lead in developing this promising technology, which will help to cut climate emissions and create green jobs right across the country.

“We hope the kind of innovation and investment shown in this major new project inspires politicians and others to give backing to ground-breaking ideas in other areas of energy use like heat and transport, to power Scotland towards its target of generating half of all Scotland’s energy needs from renewables by 2030.”
