Licence granted to explore offshore tidal energy

Mon, 12 Oct 2015

Government has granted a survey licence to allow a local company to explore the potential for offshore tidal energy.

Manx Tidal Energy Limited has been handed a seven-year agreement to carry out preliminary work.

It's in an effort to determine the practicality and commercial viability of offshore electricity production.

Part of the work will involve looking at the possibility of creating a tidal array on an area of seabed off the Point of Ayre.
