Meygen tidal turbine powers on to world record

This article discusses Meygen tidal turbine powers on to world record.

A TIDAL TURBINE array in the north of Scotland set a new world record for generating power and exporting it into the national grid.

Simec Atlantis Energy’s Meygen four turbine set-up in the Pentland Firth has generated 12 gigawatt(GW) hours of electricity since it was switched on last April – enough to power almost 9,000 homes.
