TIDAL TUR­BINES

Practical Boat Owner - - Regional News -

Rights have been granted for Nova In­no­va­tion to de­ploy a 2MW ar­ray of tidal tur­bines at Bard­sey Sound, off the Llyn Penin­sula in north Wales. The Crown Es­tate has awarded Nova In­no­va­tion an Agree­ment for Lease (AfL), which en­ables them to start ex­plor­ing the project’s potential through site sur­veys and stud­ies to in­form the tech­ni­cal fea­si­bil­ity. An En­vi­ron­men­tal Im­pact As­sess­ment will be car­ried out as part of the process. Re­gional re­new­able en­ergy or­gan­i­sa­tion YnNi Llŷn will be ex­plor­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for lo­cal use of the elec­tric­ity gen­er­ated. The AfL is the first stage in the process: the full lease will only be awarded once all of the re­quired con­sents are se­cured.
