Engineering Business


Tidal stream energy developer Engineering Business (EB) announced last week it is to build a 500kW model of its Stingray generator following successful trials of a 150kW prototype in Yell Sound, Shetland last year (NCE 19 September 2002). Stingray uses a hydroplane to pump an oscillating arm up and down, driving a DC generator. EB is seeking funding to build a demonstration tidal energy farm of ten machines next year.
