New generator for Strangford Narrows…

Anyone who has used the car ferry to cross the mouth of Strangford Lough will have some inkling as to the power of the tide as it goes out through the narrows. Marine Current Turbines are to establish a generator there next year. It’s the first working type in the world with prototypes in the Bristol Channel and another planned for the East River in New York. Richard Sherriff in the Newsletter picks up the story.

We are reader supported. Donate to keep Slugger lit!

For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.

Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported.
