Cape Sharp Tidal intends to start deployment this weekend of the first of two 2MW tidal turbines at the Fundy Ocean Research Centre for Energy in Nova Scotia.

The joint venture said deployment, including grid connection, is weather dependent.

Plans to deploy the second turbine will start next year Cape Sharp said.

Cape Sharp is a joint venture between Irish tidal turbine maker OpenHydro and Canadian utility Emera.
