The turbine is secured beneath a floating platform and connected to a mooring on the east side of the estuary. AMC project lead, Associate Professor Irene Penesis, said tidal energy was a particularly exciting form of renewable energy, and completely predictable compared with solar and wind power due to its consistent cycles.
