Sustainable Marine stated it has actually efficiently utilized the tidal currents in Canada’s Bay of Fundy, supplying the initial drifting in-stream tidal power to Nova Scotia’s grid.
Nova Scotia has actually alloted circa 30MW of ability using demo authorizations and also berths at require (Fundy Ocean Research Center for Energy) for designers to show their power generation expertise.
“Achieving ‘first power’ to the grid from our new platform in Grand Passage signals a real inflection point for our business,” statedJason Hayman, CEO, Sustainable Marine “It crystalizes the journey we’ve been on, following almost a decade of rigorous research, development and testing.
The project has enabled Sustainable Marine to gradually acquire skills and resources to deliver turnkey projects, including a multipurpose construction vessel called the Tidal Pioneer, and a suite of next-generation, remotely operated subsea installation machines supporting our novel Swift Anchors technology.
“Sustainable Marine Energy achieved a first in Canadian tidal energy history, delivering power from a floating platform in Grand Passage to Nova Scotia’s electricity grid,” said Nova Scotia Premier Tim Houston. “This project and others are positioning Nova Scotia as a global player in the tidal energy sector and are creating green technologies, green jobs, a cleaner environment and a predictable, renewable source of electricity for Nova Scotians.”
