The installation operation of the 500kW contra-rotating CoRMAT turbine, taking place at the European Marine Energy Center (EMEC), is scheduled to be completed by April 24, 2017.

Glasgow-based tidal energy developer, Nautricity, hired First Marine Solutions to conduct the installation of the turbine and a station keeping system.

The turbine has been transported from Montrose using Norwegian vessel Olympic Challenger for installation and commissioning at the Fall of Warness test site.
