Project Phase Phase 1

Project Details The Engineering Business (EB) has recently completed its program to design, build, install, test and decommission a full scale demonstrator of its Stingray tidal stream generator. The three year program undertaken with support from the DTI and NaREC has delivered a mass of technical and commercial data, and has been completed on time and under budget. There is funding available for future development, but not on the scale or basis that will allow EB to rapidly or profitably make Stingray a commercial reality. Despite the significant support of the DTI, NaREC and Shetland, given the timescales involved and investment required, EB cannot continue to sustain this project on a non-profit basis. Further Stingray commercialization has been put on hold until more funds can be procured.
