to-the-point: Nova preps to install 1st 100-kW tidal device off Shetland Islands
Scottish company Nova Innovation Ltd said in a statement on Friday it is preparing to deploy the first of three 100-kW tidal power turbines off the Shetland Islands.
Nova’s team is currently waiting for the next suitable tidal and weather window to complete the installation, supposedly next month. It concluded work on the subsea cable and the onshore connection earlier in September.
All onshore works were finalised in August, the company said, adding that the first M100 turbine was assembled and tested on the quayside at Belmont harbour in Shetland in early September.
