WATCH: Shetland Tidal Array Sees First Turbine Spin


The first power from the Shetland Tidal Array project has been exported to the grid, Nova Innovation and ELSA announced on Wednesday.

The first Nova M100 turbine of the array delivered power to the Shetland grid following a winter of operations and testing.

The Shetland Tidal Array is a joint enterprise between Nova Innovation (Scotland) and ELSA (Belgium).

Phase 1 of the array consists of three 100 kW Nova M100 turbines, with more turbines planned in following phases.

With the help of Scottish Enterprise, Nova Innovation has delivered a project with over 80% Scottish supply chain content, and over 25% of the spend in Shetland alone.
