The world’s largest tidal turbine has been installed at the European Marine Energy Centre in Orkney. The SR2000 is more than 200ft long, weighs more than 500 tonnes and is expected to generate enough electricity to power about 1000 homes a year. It was towed out to sea from Haston Pier in Kirkwall and secured to its moorings at the EMEC on Wednesday. Trials are expected to begin on the two megawatt turbine later this month after it is connected to the grid.
