 Open Hydro silent

Ballycastle SDLP Councillor Dónal Cunningham has congratulated Open Hydro, part of the consortium developing a 100MW tidal energy farm off Torr Head Co Antrim, on their selection as supplier of tidal turbines in a pilot tidal project at Paimpol-Bréhat in Brittany, France .

 Councillor Cunningham a keen supporter of renewables said “This is good news for an Irish firm, it is great to know that there is international confidence in Open Hydro and it’s technology. Open Hydro’s turbines are completely submerged and not visible above sea level. We are keen that the most up to date and effective technology is deployed locally. “

 “ Two OpenHydro turbines are to be installed on the Paimpol-Bréhat site which will test their performance while connected to the grid. This will demonstrate their long-term reliability under real conditions.”
