DCNS, Alderney Renewable Energy sign agreement for tidal power development

PARIS, France 2/27/12 (PennWell) -- French naval technologies provider DCNS and British tidal current company Alderney Renewable Energy (ARE) have signed a memorandum of understanding to develop ocean power turbine farms in the English Channel.

DCNS says that the area between the Cotentin peninsula and Alderney has one of the greatest tidal currents in the world and is capable of generating several gigawatts worth of power.

Recently, DCNS assembled the turbine and subsea base of a 2-MW unit for OpenHydro Group Ltd. off France's northern Brittany coast.

Meanwhile, ARE is currently planning a small pumped-storage hydro project on the island of Alderney in the Channel Islands.
