World’s first large-scale tidal energy farm to be installed in Scotland - TomoNews

INVERNESS, SCOTLAND — The world’s first large-scale tidal energy farm will soon be installed off the Scottish coast.

Four turbines, measuring up to 16 meters tall with 8-meter-long blades will be installed off the northern coast of Scotland between Caithness and Orkney in the initial phase of the project.

“I am incredibly proud of Scotland’s role in leading the way in tackling climate change and investment in marine renewables is a hugely important part of this,” the Guardian quoted Nicola Sturgeon, the First Minister of Scotland as saying.

According to the Guardian, developer Atlantis Resources hopes to install a total of 269 turbines, a move that could provide energy for 175,000 homes.

According to the Scottish Government, the country holds one quarter of the Europe’s offshore wind resources.
