Cape Sharp prepares tidal turbine for deployment

Deployment of a giant tidal turbine in Minas Passage is on hold again.

Cape Sharp Tidal was planning to drop the 1,000 tonne turbine in the water this past weekend….but it’s on hold while further preparation work is done. The company says it wasn’t because of the weather. It does have a week long window of neap tides to do the work.

Cape Sharp is planning to deploy one turbine this year and a second later.
