South Korea (TGW) – British tidal power company Lunar Energy has agreed to build the world’s largest tidal power system in South Korea.
The $1 billion project will use power from fast-moving tidal streams, caused by rising and falling tides, to turn a field of 300 60ft-high tidal turbines on the sea floor.
The project is expected to power 200,000 homes by 2015.
William Law, chairman of Lunar Energy, said that there was the potential around the British coast for tidal stream turbines to generate up to 20% of Britain's energy needs.
