Underwater turbine tested to harness tidal power in Scotland

Scottish Power Renewables (SPR) has conducted a test on an immersed turbine which can be utilized to harness tidal power to produce electricity.

The test has successfully completed in northern isles of Orkney,in the island of Eday. The turbine known as Hammerfest Strom HS1000, is already a source of electricity for many homes and businesses on Eday.

Hammerfest can be monitored underwater, with help of engineers based out of the European Marine Energy Center.

This HS1000 comes with integrated blades that spin in the direction and flow of tides which helps generate power.The structure of Hammerfest has been inspired from a tri-pod.

Scotland is exploiting all modes of clean energy which will help in generating electricity and reducing their carbon footprint share.
