Via Solar Access.com comes this report, UK Ocean Energy Testing Begins (9/8/03)
on the commencement of testing on a prototype tidal energy turbine, the EXIM Tidal turbine in the Bluemull Sound, between the islands of Yell and Unst. Swedish-owned Seapower Scotland and Lerwick company Delta Marine are conducting the tests which will be used to further refine the prototype with a view towards full scale manufacturing and commercialization.
