Pentland Firth Tidal Turbine Project Given Consent

Recommended Posts

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-24100811

Work is to begin on the largest tidal energy project in Europe after the Scottish government granted permission.

MeyGen is to install the tidal array in stages in the Pentland Firth, between Orkney and the Scottish mainland.

It will begin with a 9MW demonstration project of up to six turbines, with construction expected to take place on a phased basis until 2020.

When fully operational, the 86MW array could generate enough electricity to power the equivalent of 42,000 homes.

..

The firm has agreed a 25-year lease with the Crown Estate for an area encompassing about 1.4 square miles (3.5 square kilometres) of fast flowing water between the island of Stroma and the north easterly tip of the Scottish mainland.

Does this mean the Queen gets a nice profit from leasing the land under the sea? Nice work if you can get it.

No we do, or the Treasury does. Crown Estates manage land/resources which are not the private property of the monarch
