FORCE buzzing with activity

The Fundy Ocean Research Center for Energy (FORCE) and its partners are entering frequent and ongoing activity at locations including the Parrsboro wharf, West Bay, and the FORCE site in the Minas Passage.

According to FORCE, the marine activities relate both to turbine deployment preparation as well as underwater monitoring platform trials, deployment, and data capture.

Activities may also include crane use, necessitating brief delays in wharf access. FORCE will work with all wharf users in an effort to minimize disruption to routine activities, it stated in the advisory notice.

Vessels, barges, and personnel may enter and exit the Parrsboro wharf from time to time.

The public is welcome to observe marine operations from the FORCE visitor center, and via video streaming.

As reported earlier, Cape Sharp Tidal, a joint venture between Emera and OpenHydro, is taking final steps towards the deployment of two 2 MW tidal turbines at FORCE site, off Parrsboro.

The first turbine is expected to be deployed in the following months, with the deployment of the second turbine planned for early 2016.
