Tidal Turbine Connected with Onshore Electricity Grid

onshore grid.   The operation was carried out in the Fromveur Passage, off the island of Ushant, France, and the future outcome of connecting the two halves is a coverage of 15 to 20 percent of the Ushant island’s electricity consumption needs. Completed with the help of a MacArtney connectivity solution, the ‘Sabella D10’ tidal stream turbine project includes two drymate GreenLink connectors, one linked with the turbine, the other one connected to the export cable. They are eventually lifted out of the water and connected to one another.   Over the past years, Sabella

Tidal Turbine Uses GreenLink Connectivity Solution

French marine renewable energy company Sabella S.A.S. has placed an order for a complete MacArtney connectivity solution for its new industrial scale Sabella D10 tidal stream turbine project, MacArtney announced.   Over the past decade, Sabella has developed an original concept for a screen of tidal turbines positioned on the seafloor. Pre-orientated in the direction of natural tidal currents and empowered by symmetrical rotor blades, the turbines capture the energy generated by the shift between ebb and flow. The rotor is activated even by modest current motion and powers a generator, which
