Working in partnership with MBPP, British MCT will participate in the tidal power demonstration centre established by the Province of Nova Scotia. The two companies intend to deploy a 1.5 MW tidal generator when the in-stream tidal energy centre enters full operation and is connected to the Nova Scotia grid.
Scott Travers, President and Chief Operating Officer of MBPP, says: “We were one of the original developers of power generation, transmission and distribution in Nova Scotia, and we still operate a major renewable hydro generating facility. Tidal power has significant potential benefits for all Nova Scotians.”
"We hope first to be in a position to address the potential investment and job creation prize for Nova Scotians when tidal power commercial development moves to the next step. There is a potential new industry here employing hundreds of people in operations and manufacturing and deployment of tidal power technology, here and globally," Travers adds.
