BOA launched the world’s most powerful tidal turbine


The 680-tonne Orbital O2 tidal turbine was loaded onboard the semisubmersible heavy deck cargo barge Boabarge 35 (124m x 31.5m x 7.93m) in the port of Dundee, Scotland and floated off on river Tay on the morning of April 22nd.

After the float-off, the turbine was towed to the Orkney, where it will be anchored and produce electricity to power 2,000 homes.

BOA wish to thanks Osprey Shipping for allowing us to take part of this innovative project.
