The world's most powerfull tidal turbine was launched by BOA

On the morning of April 22nd, the 680-tonne Orbital O2 tidal turbine was loaded onto the semisubmersible heavy deck cargo barge Boabarge 35 (124 m x 31.5 m x 7.93 m) in Dundee, Scotland, and floated off on the river Tay.

The turbine was towed to Orkney after the float-off, where it would be anchored and generate enough energy to power 2000 homes.
