Nautricity given green light for tidal schemes

Marine Scotland has given consent for the deployment of the first Contra Rotating Marine Turbine (CoRMaT) device, which is said to be capable of generating enough electricity to supply 400 homes. In addition, Argyll and Bute Council has approved the construction of an onshore sub-station that will connect the array to the National Grid.

Work on the onshore connection is expected to start later this year, with the devices being deployed in the water in early 2015.
