World’s first tidal hydrogen project underway

Floating turbine will generate electricity from tidal movements and power onshore electrolyser

A new tidal turbine has connected to the European Marine Energy Centre (Emec) in the Orkney Islands, UK, where it will generate green hydrogen and provide electricity to the grid. The Floating Tidal Energy Commercialisation project, led by Orbital Marine Power, will generate electricity from tidal movements over the next 15 years with the capacity to meet the annual electricity demand of around 2,000 UK homes. The 74m floating turbine will also provide power to Emec’s onshore 0.5MW proton-exchange membrane electrolyser to generate green hydrogen to be used for local transport applications. "Our vision is that this project is the trigger to the harnessing of tidal stream resource
