A prototype rig capable of producing 100 kilowatts of electricity and enough to power 70 homes, developed by the UK’s University of Hull and Pulse Tidal, has officially began operation earlier this week, the Hull and East Riding
reported yesterday (July 29). The technology, lowered into the Humber off Immingham in September last year, reportedly converts shallow wave power into energy by using horizontal blades which move in the tidal stream and drive a generator.
