and E.ON UKare to develop an 8MW tidal stream power project in the sea off the west coast of Britain utilising Rotech Tidal Turbine units.

The project would be the first commercial scale tidal stream energy plant of its kind anywhere in the World, capable of producing enough power for up to 5,000 homes.

The proposed scheme will use tidal streams, which are fast-moving currents created by rising and falling tides, to turn an array of large turbines situated on the sea floor.

‘The Lunar Energy RTT technology is invisible and environmentally friendly and to be selected as the technology of choice for the first commercial scale tidal stream development in the UK is a testament to the innovation and adaptability of this technology developed for us by Rotech Engineering Limited,’ commented Simon Meade, Lunar Energy’s CEO.
