Nova Scotia is a step closer at another attempt at harnessing power from the highest tides in the world.
At an open house in Halifax, Cape Sharp Tidal — a collaboration between OpenHydro and Emera — said it was putting the finishing touches on a 1,000-tonne turbine set to be installed in the Bay of Fundy by the end of 2015.
"At this stage, we are finalizing the manufacturing. We'll be assembling the turbine components in the next few days," said Jeremy Poste, the project leader of Cape Sharp Tidal.
"Definitely between November and December, by the end of this year, we will have a turbine under water, on seabed, generating electricity."
A second turbine is expected to be installed some time in early 2016.
