Project Phase Phase 3

Project Details Clean Current completed installation of a 65 kW tidal turbine generator (TTG) during September 2006. Hydraulic and electrical performance tests were completed in December 2006, after which time the TTG was connected to the control system that feeds electricity into the battery storage system at Race Rocks. As of June 2007, the TTG had successfully extracted power in flows of up to 6.6 knots (3.4 m/s), and was removed from the water during May 2007.
