Tidal generator in Bluemull Sound

July 20th 2015

This is the cradle for the second tidal generator being installed in Bluemull Sound. It's currenly lying on Belmont pier before being installed on site.

This innovative technology takes advantage of the very strong tidal currents which race up and down the sound. You'll see the strength of the currents when you're on the ferry to Belmont or if you walk from Belmont to Belmont Broch which projects out into the sound.
