ANDRITZ HYDRO Hammerfest HS1000 Tidal Device

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.
