The second turbine bound for EDF’s Paimpol-Bréhat tidal array has been successfully deployed by OpenHydro, a DCNS company.
OpenHydro, a DCNS company, has announced the development of a purpose-built tidal turbine assembly facility at Cherbourg Port.
James Ives, OpenHydro Chief Executive, said: "The first of two OpenHydro tidal turbines on EDF‘s Paimpol-Bréhat site has been successfully deployed. After a series of successful tests evaluating mechanical and electrical performance, the 16-metre-diameter turbine was towed out to sea on Wednesday 20th January and deployed by the OpenHydro barge."
Cape Sharp Tidal, a joint venture between Emera and OpenHydro, has completed two significant milestone operations in preparation for the next phase of the tidal energy demonstration project - the installation of its subsea power cable and the launch of its deployment barge.
Tidal energy developer OpenHydro, a DCNS company, has secured top honours at this year’s Engineers Ireland Excellence Awards and SEAI Sustainable Energy Awards.
