MRC gets CAD 100 K for tidal supply chain workshops

Marine Renewables Canada (MRC) is setting up workshops on locations across Nova Scotia for companies interested in exploring opportunities in the tidal energy supply chain.

Three levels of government have partnered to contribute more than CAD 100.000 to the initiative.

To build on the momentum of tidal energy projects in the Bay of Fundy, MRC has been working to assess the needs of local project developers including Fundy Tidal, Minas Energy, Black Rock Tidal Power, Atlantis Operations Canada and Cape Sharp Tidal Venture, ACOA’s press release reads.

The goal is to identify Atlantic Canadian suppliers who can meet tidal energy development requirements through expertise in ocean technology, marine operations and offshore oil and gas.

Beginning this month, MRC is delivering a series of webinars, in-person workshops and community open houses to potential suppliers.

In addition to providing information, the sessions will connect local suppliers with international developers. The sessions will take place throughout 2015, in locations across Nova Scotia including Halifax, Digby and Parrsboro.

Michel Samson, Minister of Energy for Nova Scotia, said: The tidal sector has great potential in creating a renewable energy source as well as creating even more economic activity and ocean-related expertise here in Nova Scotia. This initiative positions local companies to tap into the growing tidal energy supply chain, creating opportunities for expertise and export in our communities.”

Established in 2004, MRC is a national industry association that comprises of 100 members whose mission is to align industry, academia and government to ensure that Canada is a leader in providing ocean energy solutions to a world market.

The Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA) works to create opportunities for economic growth in Atlantic Canada.
