Each of the firm’s floating tidal power superstructures will support two 1 MW turbines.

The “floating superstructure” from Orbital Marine Power is just over 236 feet long and will be used for supporting two 1 MW turbines. Those will be capable of enough energy generation to provide the annual electricity needs of about 1,700 homes in the United Kingdom.

“Rather than our turbines being fixed to the seabed looking like a wind turbine, they are fixed to a floating platform which we can anchor in really fast flowing tidal streams,” said Orbital Marine Power CEO Andrew Scott.
