The second generation 500KW device has been put in place alongside the company’s special mooring system.

The device features seven 1-shot RTM blades manufactured by Airborne Marine.

Last year, the company tested its first full scale CoRMaT Turbine and full scale mooring assembly HydroBuoy, a hydro-dynamic subsurface float whose lift varies with the tidal flow velocity, at EMEC.
