Project Info
Seaflow Project LYNMOUTH, N Devon
This project involved the development of an "underwater windmill" which can generate a maximum of 300kW in a 2.7m/s current (5.5 knots) using an 11m diameter rotor,

Worlds First Open Sea Tidal Turbine
The first tidal turbine generator in open-sea in the world was installed 1 mile off the coast of LYNMOUTH, Devon, in spring 2003 by Bristol-based Marine Current Turbines (MCT)

The LYNMOUTH Marine Turbine
The turbine started generating electricity on 30th May 2002. At a depth of 65-ft (20 m), it presents no danger to shipping. The 52-ft (16 m) blades revolve at between 12 and 15 rpm ensuring there is no interference with marine life.
