Sanda Sound Tidal Energy Project Public Information Day

Oceanflow Development Limited (Oceanflow) is proposing to install and test a 1/4 scale tidal energy converter device in Sanda Sound, South Kintyre. The device is capable of generating energy with the tides, up to a maximum power of around 35kW, and is intended to be connected to the national grid. This is a prototype, and would be used to test the concept of small scale community energy size tidal turbines and to help understand the performance that could be expected from larger units deployed in areas such as the Pentland Firth.

An application is being made in June 2011 to Marine Scotland, in order to obtain consent for installation of the device in Sanda Sound.

Oceanflow will be holding a public information day in Campbeltown for the purpose of informing local residents and any other interested parties about the device, our company and our plans for the trials. Oceanflow staff will be there to answer questions and there will be a short presentation at two pre-arranged times during the event. We very much look forward to meeting you and hearing your questions and points of view.
