The world’s most powerful, most technologically advanced tidal turbine is currently generating energy in Orkney waters at the EMEC test site at the Falls of Warness. The design concept has its origins in Stromness, with the company that is today Orbital Marine Power. Several of its staff join us on film to tell the story of the 2 MW O2 turbine. How was it designed? How was it built? And how does it to feel to be working on the forefront of technology in an island setting?
