In 2016 Nova installed the world’s first offshore tidal array in Shetland. It has been powering homes and businesses for over five years.
Orbital’s unique floating platform is moored via anchors in powerful tidal stream or river currents. Underwater rotors capture the dense flowing energy.
In November 2021, SAE entered into a collaboration agreement with fellow world leading tidal energy developer, Nova Innovation. The agreement will see the companies work together to deliver tidal turbines at the MeyGen site and beyond.
