Tidal feasibility study underway off Martha’s Vineyard

first_imgMarine Renewable Energy Collaborative (MRECo) has started the feasibility study into the development of tidal power in Muskeget Channel off Massachusetts.The study, being conducted with the town of Edgartown on Martha’s Vineyard island, will seek to determine if an adequate tidal resource exists in the Muskeget Channel.If the survey confirms that there is an adequate resource in the channel, a model will be created to see what potential output there would be for up to 5 tidal turbines, MRECo informed.This model along with preliminary estimates of the costs of permitting and grid interconnection is expected to provide more precise power output estimates which will then be used to determine the Levelized Cost of Energy (LCoE) for a project of that scope.MRECo is a nonprofit corporation that aims to foster the sustainable growth of marine renewable energy, including wave, tidal, and offshore wind sectors of New England.[mappress mapid=”42″]last_img read more
