UK: Scotrenewables Completes 4 Day Deployment of SR250

Continuing on from the successful grid connection last month, Scotrenewables Tidal Power Ltd. has forged ahead with their testing plan and have just completed a 4 day deployment of the SR250.

Using the locally owned multi-cat ‘MV Orcadia’, the device was towed to site on Thursday morning and connected to their mooring at The Fall Of Warness. The device underwent a series of tests and remained on site until late on Sunday evening before being towed back to Hatston.

Initially, the SR250 full-scale prototype was towed to EMEC Fall of Warness tidal test site and connected to it’s mooring system and electrical cable at slack tide ready for generation on the 18th of April. The turbine began to generate and export power with the turn of the tide – in doing so the SR250 prototype has become the world’s first floating tidal turbine to achieve export of power to the national grid.
