Cape Sharp Tidal links subsea cables

Cape Sharp Tidal has connected the turbine cable tail with the interconnection cable at the Fundy Ocean Research Center for Energy (FORCE) in the Bay of Fundy.

The 300-meter interconnection cable connects the turbine’s power and data systems to an existing 16MW subsea export cable at FORCE, which is connected to the onshore substation.

Throughout the next few weeks, Cape Sharp Tidal will test the connection, communications and electrical systems to confirm energy production and communications with the monitoring devices as part of the commissioning program.

To remind, Cape Sharp Tidal installed the first 2MW OpenHydro tidal turbine on November 7.

The deployment of the second turbine, which will complete the 4MW tidal array, will begin next year.
