Glasgow-based tidal energy developer Nautricity has started the installation of its 500kW CoRMaT tidal turbine at the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC).

The installation operation, taking place at EMEC’s grid-connected Falls of Warness tidal test site, is scheduled to be completed by April 24, 2017.

First Marine Solutions has been hired to conduct the installation of the turbine and a station keeping system, and the operation is being conducted using Norwegian vessel Olympic Challenger.

Nautricity’s CoRMaT is a contra-rotating turbine which uses two closely spaced dissimilar rotors, moving in opposite directions, to drive the rotor and rotating stator sections of an electrical generator.

In November 2016, Nautricity was selected to receive support under the first call of the €11 million EU-funded FORESEA project.
