Cape Sharp Tidal Recovers Turbine at FORCE

Deployment of Cape Sharp Tidal turbine at FORCE in 2016

Cape Sharp Tidal, an OpenHydro and Emera company, has retrieved its 2MW tidal turbine from the Bay of Fundy.

The operation was carried out last week and it took approximately 70 minutes.

The turbine has been taken to West Bay for preliminary inspection and to prepare it for transport. It will be taken directly from West Bay to Saint John.

The company said it retrieved the turbine so it can make some upgrades to OpenHydro’s turbine control centre (TCC).

The TCC is like a subsea substation that allows us to transform the raw power from the generator into grid-compatible AC power. It also sends operational and environmental sensor data to shore in real-time through our subsea cable, Cape Sharp Tidal explained.

Once this work is completed, the turbine will be re-deployed to the FORCE site and a second turbine will be deployed later this year.
