Flex Marine Power are excited to be working with Queens University Belfast (QUB) to carry out tidal energy research in the Narrows tidal channel, Strangford Lough. Based in Scotland, Flex Marine have been developing their community-oriented tidal energy technology since 2015. Marine operations have now commenced at QUB's test site, being delivered by local outfit Strangford Moorings. Activities in the Narrows are scheduled to be completed before Christmas and the work aims to demonstrate the ability of Flex Marine’s technology (a floating buoy with a horizontal axis turbine mounted underwater) to generate clean, predictable energy from our oceans.
