Scottish tidal power firm installs turbine in Japan

Simec Atlantis Energy (SAE) has installed one of its Scottish-built tidal turbines in the Goto Island chain in Japan. The tidal turbine clocked its first 10 MWh of generation within the first ten days of operation and is now producing clean electricity in Japan.

The project included leasing tidal generation equipment and providing offshore construction services to Kyuden Mirai Energy for a pilot turbine located in the straits of Naru Island, within the southern Japanese Goto island chain. The SAE-designed and manufactured AR500 tidal turbine was assembled at SAEโ€™s base at Nigg Energy Park in Scotland. The turbine was assembled and tested in nine weeks before shipping to Japan.
