Turbine could be one of first in Pentland Firth

THE COMPANY behind the testing of a tidal turbine, expects to be one of the first sited in the Pentland Firth.
Amanda’s Resources say they have been successful in raising the three and a quarter million pounds need to support its research and development programme.
The company say that the successful funding campaign for the AK 1000, the world’s biggest tidal turbine, involved predominately existing shareholders. Now the money will be used to finance the testing and deployment of the turbine, at the European marine energy centre in Orkney this summer.
