The tidal energy awardees include ScotRenewables Ltd., which will install its 1.2-megawatt floating device with dual undersea rotors; OpenHydro Group Ltd., which will deploy a 750-kilowatt turbine on the sea floor; Tidal Generation Ltd., which will also mount its 1-megawatt turbines on the seabed, and CleanTechCom Ltd., an affiliate of Woodshed Technologies, which will install siphon pipes through a causeway on Orkney to take advantage of the tidal differences on either side of the barrier. See the press releases from ScotRenewables and OpenHydro and Woodshed Technologies' description of its Tidal Delay concept.
The Scottish Executive awarded the equivalent of more than $25 million in grants in late February to support a variety of wave and tidal energy projects. Most of the projects involve test installations at the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) in Orkney, which aims to be a world-leader test facility for wave and tidal energy projects. Among the wave energy awardees are CRE Energy, Ltd., which plans to deploy an array of four 750-kilowatt cylindrical Pelamis wave energy converters, developed by Ocean Power Delivery, Ltd. (OPD); AWS Ocean Energy, which will install its 500-kilowatt Archimedes Wave Swing; Ocean Power Technology (OPT), which will install its 150-kilowatt PowerBuoy; Aquamarine Power Ltd., which will deploy its Oyster, a near-shore device that is mounted on the seabed; and Wavegen, which will install a new turbine in its oscillating water column system on the isle of Islay.
