Cape Sharp Tidal has deployed the first OpenHydro open-centre turbine at the Fundy Ocean Research Centre for Energy (FORCE) near Parrsboro, Nova Scotia, on Monday.

Atlantic Towing’s Kingfisher towed the Scotia Tide deployment barge from West Bay to the site early Monday morning. Once in position the Cape Sharp Tidal turbine was lowered to the sea floor in a 4-hour operation on an ebb tide, Cape Sharp Tidal informed.

“During the remainder of this week’s deployment window, we will be focused on completing the grid-connection to FORCE’s subsea cable, and delivering Nova Scotia’s first in-stream tidal energy to the Provincial power grid. In the next few days, we’ll connect the turbine cable tail and our Y-shaped connector cable by lifting each from the sea floor and joining them on the deck of Atlantic Towing’s Beaver Barge,” the company explained.

Several marine companies were involved in the operation including Atlantic Towing, Seaforth, Mike Huntley and RMI.
