The ‘World’s most powerful’ tidal turbine

Scottish floating technology developer Orbital Marine Power has launched what is claimed to be the world’s most powerful tidal turbine from the port of Dundee. The 72-meter long 2MW turbine, named Orbital O2, was later transferred to the Orkney Islands where it will undergo commissioning before being connected to the European Marine Energy Center. The technology has the ability to generate enough energy to power around 2,000 homes and offset approximately 2,200 tons of carbon dioxide every year. The project, the construction of which started in the second half of 2019, is backed by the Scottish Government with £3.4 million. https://www.energylivenews.com/2021/04/23/worlds-most-powerful-tidal-turbine-ready-to-make-waves-in-scotland/ ........................................................... #technology #conservation #news

NOAA forecasters say that G2-class geomagnetic storms are possible on Sunday when a CME is expected to strike the earth's magnetic field. All that said, for the moment, all space weather is calm and geomagnetic conditions are normal. 4:50 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C-zkhz037_Y ............................................................................ #science #space #nature #education #news
