The Sound of Islay Tidal Energy project will use the HS1000 tidal turbine designed by ANDRITZ HYDRO Hammerfest.
A single 1MW HS1000 was deployed and grid-connected in December 2011 at EMEC in Orkney. It has reached full export capacity during testing and is exporting power to the grid. ANDRITZ HYDRO have produced a short video explaining more about the device and how it operates.
The HS1000 Tidal Turbine video can be watched on YouTube.
