A turbine in the Shetland Tidal Array has passed commissioning tests and is now fully functional. Nova Innovation and green energy company ELSA successfully installed the turbine earlier this year and it has now transferred power to the grid.
The 100 kW Nova M100 device has passed an extensive series of commissioning tests, and is now fully operational. Nova Innovation and Belgian green energy company ELSA installed the device in February. It is now connected to SSE’s NINES grid management system, which enables increased renewable energy capacity on a congested grid.
The Shetland Tidal Array, in the Bluemull Sound, will be one of the world’s first in-sea tidal arrays when the first three devices are fully installed.
Simon Forrest, Managing Director of Nova Innovation, said: “Completing this first phase of commissioning is an important milestone for the project and our company. It shows that, through collaboration, a pan-European partnership between a Scottish manufacturing company and a Belgian developer can deliver a world-leading project.”
