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.
