VIDEO: AR1500 Tidal Power Turbine System
The AR1500 is the latest tidal power turbine system under development at Atlantis.
The AR1500 will have a rated capacity of 1.5MW at 3.0 m/s and will be designed to withstand the extreme environmental conditions expected to be encountered in the Pentland Firth in Scotland and the Bay of Fundy in Canada.
The detailed design of this cutting edge turbine will be completed by Lockheed Martin Corporation during 2014. The AR1500 system will have active rotor pitch and full nacelle yaw rotation capability to facilitate operation in highly energetic deployment locations.
