Aecon to Build BRTP’s Tidal Power Device

Nova Scotia renewable energy company, Black Rock Tidal Power (BRTP), has awarded a contract to fabricate its Triton S40 tidal power platform to Aecon.

The instream tidal device will be installed in the Bay of Fundy in 2017.

BRTP’s tidal-current energy technology uses 40 SIT 250 turbines mounted on the Triton, summing up to 2.5 MW overall capacity, the company explained.

“Aecon is pleased to be working on this significant tidal energy project with Black Rock Tidal Power, and we are confident this project will showcase Aecon’s experience and best-in-class facilities in Nova Scotia,” said Mark Scherer, executive vice president, Aecon Energy.

BRTP’s general manager Nils Hirsch said: “Our team is on the leading edge with this innovative technology and we are excited to be working with Aecon and many other Nova Scotia companies to show the world the benefits of tidal power.”
