OpenHydro was selected as part of a competitive process undertaken by the Department in its drive to progress the development of a tidal energy industry in the Bay of Fundy.

OpenHydro, a DCNS company, will now proceed with plans for the deployment of a fully grid connected 4MW tidal array to be in place later in 2015. The array will consist of two 16m (2.0MW) commercial scale turbines. On successful completion, this project has the potential to be the world’s first multi-megawatt array of interconnected tidal turbines, providing energy to over 1,000 customers in Nova Scotia.

OpenHydro’s 16m tidal turbine has already been successfully deployed and is currently operating off the coast of France.

A group led by OpenHydro together with Nova Scotia-based energy company Emera, will deliver the project. The projects key local industrial partners are Irving Shipbuilding, Irving Equipment and Atlantic Towing. The group has ambitious future plans for tidal energy in the region and are looking to use this initial demonstration project as the first phase of a commercial scale project in the Bay of Fundy, which subject to regulatory approvals, will see the array grow to 300MW.

OpenHydro (openhydro.com) is committed to establishing a local manufacturing hub in the Bay of Fundy area using local skills and predict that 950 direct and indirect jobs will be created as the project moves to commercial scale. It is OpenHydro’s strategy to develop local manufacturing hubs in regions located close to major areas of tidal resource.

Commenting on this latest award by the Department of Energy in Nova Scotia, Thierry Kalanquin, executive chairman of OpenHydro and DCNS Senior Vice President Energies and Marine Infrastructure, said: “OpenHydro is proud to have been the first technology installed in the Bay of Fundy and we remain convinced of the potential of the region as a major source of clean renewable energy. This project represents an important step in building a local tidal energy industry in Nova Scotia and a next step in the development of commercial tidal farms in the region. Thanks to the on-going support of the Department of Energy of Nova Scotia, we are looking forward to continuing to work with FORCE and building a long term relationship with our industrial partner Irving.”

“We believe in the power of the Bay of Fundy,” said Chris Huskilson, President and CEO of Emera. “Along with OpenHydro, we are very proud to have been the first to deploy a tidal turbine in these waters. Now, together with Irving, we’re excited to continue development of the tidal industry in Nova Scotia and increase the importance of tidal in our region’s energy mix.”

Following today’s announcement, OpenHydro and its industrial partners will now progress work schedules and engage with the procurement cycle before mobilisation and deployment in 2015.
