Nova Innovation branches out to Nova Scotia

Edinburgh-based tidal energy developer Nova Innovation has applied to develop a tidal energy array in the Bay of Fundy area of Nova Scotia, the company announced on 1 October.

The project will use Nova’s 100kW turbines, which have been operating at Nova Innovation’s array site off the coast of Shetland since 2016. In 2018, Nova Innovation also worked with Tesla to add energy storage to its tidal technology. This created the world’s first baseload tidal power station with the ability to deliver constant, steady-state power to consumers.

The first device is expected to be deployed in Nova Scotia in 2020.
